Buy the Charlie Caftan from Closet Case Patterns, it is a loose fitting silhouette skimming summer dress. All versions feature a deep V neckline, kimono sleeves, inset center panel and roomy pockets.

You may also choose between a dramatically wide kimono sleeve, or one slightly higher cut for more coverage
