.SHEARWATER KAFTAN.

Excited to release a new Make It Perfect pattern today - this time, one for the ladies!!!

SHEARWATER KAFTAN

Brighten up your wardrobe with a sensational Shearwater Kaftan.

With just the right balance between floaty and fitted and featuring lovely front placket detail in a choice of two lengths, the Shearwater Kaftan is comfortable, flattering and practical.

Wear your Shearwater Kaftan with long sleeves to provide protection from the sun or roll up the sleeves and secure with a cute sleeve tab if you want short sleeves!

Throw it on over a pair of swimmers and shorts, wear it with a summer skirt or dress up a pair of jeans the possibilities are endless...

This version of the Shearwater Kaftan was made using an absolutely divine double gauze fabric called Fuccra Rakuen by Nani Iro that is currently in stock at Kelani Fabric.

Head over to the Make It Perfect website to see more photos and check out the fabric requirements for Shearwater Kaftan.

If you have a store and want to stock this or any other Make It Perfect patterns, contact Creative Abundance to place an order.

If you would like to purchase a copy of Shearwater Kaftan for yourself, they should be popping up in retail stores very soon. Ask your favourite store to get one in for you!
A BIG HUGE thankyou to Fiona Harding for her brilliant photography and excellent service and to my SENSATIONAL model, the adorable Miss Emma (isn't she stunning?!)

I really like this one Toni, I love all that 'boho' stuff, never got out of my 'hippy' stage.
I like that you can turn the sleeves up as well, and I like that you have got Shearwater in it.
I think it will be really popular.
Love Auntie Lorraine.
