garment series: the charlie caftan

It's time to start getting your summer wardrobe ready.... warm weather IS coming, we promise!

Come sew with us and make the gorgeous Charlie Caftan from Closet Case Patterns.  This beautiful and versatile garment will prove to be a wardrobe staple this summer!  

Choose View A, B, or C to customize this dress to your liking.... View A is modern and architectural with striking pleats beneath the bust.  For a softer, more romantic dress, Views B & C (pictured) 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 kimono sleeve or one slightly higher cut for more coverage.  All versions feature a deep V neckline, kimono sleeves, and roomy POCKETS... who doesn't love a dress with pockets!

The Saturday option is a 10-3pm class, we'll take a quick 30-minute lunch break to recharge. 

Students should arrive to the first class on-time, ready to sew with all materials purchased.  Pattern is available in our shop, along with a selection of appropriate fabrics.  We highly recommend laundering your fabric prior to class.
