    Nothing says summer elegance quite as well as a dramatic caftan. Charlie is a fresh take on this warm weather staple.

    All versions feature a deep V neckline, short dolman sleeves, inset center panel and roomy pockets. View A is modern and architectural with striking pleats beneath the bust. For a softer, more romantic dress, Views B & C feature a gently gathered bodice with an optional waist tie for a figure-skimming silhouette in two skirt lengths. You may also choose between a dramatically wide sleeve, or one slightly higher cut for more coverage.


    Charlie is also available as a PDF download.


    Model notes: Our model is 5'-9" and is wearing a size 10.

Fancy Jammies

LOVE these pajamas, they're super chic so you can look fancy while being lazy. The online tutorial for the notched collar was a huge help, as were the tutorials about adding piping (which is a super sleek addition). It makes me wish I could just live in pajamas forever!

Charlie Caftan

I have not had a chance to make this beautiful caftan,! I am in the process of moving and when this is over, I will get back to my sewing. Hope to make this for my summer wardrobe!

Caftan kleed

Super handige uitleg, heel gemakkelijke jurk om te maken. Het model is zoals voorgesteld heel gemakkelijk (+-2uur aan gewerkt) en comfortabel om te dragen. Super kleed, veel complimenten over gekregen en heel blij mee! Ik ga in de toekomst zeker nog patronen bestellen.

Pj Obsession

Yep, I’m obsessed with this pattern. I’ve made 3 pairs in the past month or so. Used the very helpful tutorials to make my own piping for 2 versions and to figure out the notched collar. I have plans to make 4 pairs of the shorts for my college-age nieces. The fit is awesome tho if like me, over 50, you might want to lengthen the shorts a bit. Feel very fancy lounging about!

Great Pattern

I will definitely be making more pjs with this pattern. Love the fit and ability to lengthen or shorten. I lengthened the top and bottoms by 1 inch for my daughter who is 5’ 10” tall and they were perfect.
