Hi everyone.

I'm just wondering if any of you know of a pattern (preferrably free, I'm low on cash) or tutorial for a simple caftan. Any help or advice would be great. Thank you!!

Hi Laney -- see if this is what you were thinking of:
http://www.modestclothes.com/patterns_files/caftan.htm

I don't really even know how to sew (well at least 'I' don't think so,lol) ...so when I looked at the instructions there I went *?!huh?!* this is wayy too complicated ...
then when I saw the graphics & the shape of the thing at the bottom of the page I said OH ok, SURE...
because years n yeeearrrs ago I used to make something almost exactly like that as a sort of combination nightgown/robe/lounging thing. Except I never used nor even had a pattern, just spread a bunch of fabrics out on the floor & started cuttin' & bastin'.

Since I really didn't know or understand what I was doing & barely knew how to use a machine, I did avoid stretchy synthetics, mainlyjust stuck with lightweight cottons & linens. I pretty much made up my own combinations of sleeve lengths/neckline styles/hem lengths/fullness variations/side slit styles/etc etc as I went along. But the REAL fun, to me, was playing arund with decorative touches -- the possibilities there are literally endless. Have fun!
