.MINI Shearwater Kaftan - NEW PATTERN!.

After many, many requests over the last four years I am happy to share with you a MINI girl's version of the original women's Shearwater Kaftan pattern.

A long-time favourite Make It Perfect pattern for women - Shearwater Kaftan - now comes in sizes for girls!
Brighten up your wardrobe with a sensational Shearwater Kaftan. 
With just the right balance between floaty and fitted and featuring lovely front placket detail, 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...
I am so so so in love with the mini version of this pattern. I put off writing it for so long because I honestly didn't think the style with suit a little girl, but I was wrong - it is perfect!
The Mini Shearwater Kaftan is more than a beach cover-up...although it does do an awesome job keeping the sun off at the beach too! With such simple lines you can really let your favourite fabrics shine as the main feature of the kaftan.
I prefer making my kaftans (both women's and girl's) out of a floaty fabric like the double gauze featured here or cotton voile, rayon or lawn although quilting cotton works just as well!
The Mini Shearwater Kaftan comes in two size ranges, catering for girls from 6 months - 10 years old. 

Paper copies of the pattern will be heading to shops very soon, or you can easily grab an Instant Download PDF pattern from my website. And, as a new pattern release special The Mini Shearwater Kaftan pattern is 25% off for the rest of this week!

Just a week ago a friend of mine asked me if I'd seen a pattern for a simple top exactly like this for girls because she always found it hard to buy one. I'll have to pass on the great news!

I'm so pleased to see you've released this - I love my (many) Shearwater kaftans & I'm sure my 2 girls would love their own. And thanks for doing the bigger sizes, so versatile.
