This caftan is an easy-breezy wardrobe staple, made from a single rectangle of fabric with a drawstring to add a lovely shape. Liesl shows you how to sew this as a top, or longer if you’d prefer a tunic or dress. Included in her instruction is how to use interfacing on the neck facing, and hand printing the caftan for a totally customizable, elegant garment.
