I’m doing some tinkering on the blog and need to delete all my draft posts……..I found this one, which has been hanging around for a couple of years I think. Anyhow, I’m not sure why I never completed the post but it seems a shame to relegate it to the waste bin.
In short, it is a Shearwater Kaftan (one of three I have made – the first was another Nani Iro double gauze made while I was pregnant with Katie and was so comfortable – double gauze is really the best fabric ever invented). I’m afraid I haven’t the foggiest recollection where I found the Nani Iro, I think it was probably a UK online shop. Previous double gauze purchases came from overseas but it is pretty easy to get hold of here now – yay!
It is a lovely straight forward pattern. Slightly fitted and perfect for summer Just what it says on the packet in fact! I think I made this one a little too long (it worked well with a bump but less so without one) and the next one was a wee bit shorter and probably a little more flattering. Not sure what else to say – if you’re looking for an easy summer top to sew then I’d definitely recommend you give it a go!
