Buy the Charlie Caftan sewing pattern from Closet Core Patterns. 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 centre panel and roomy pockets. View A is modern and architectural with striking pleats beneath the bust. For a softer, more romantic dress, Views B and 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.

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following format:
