DIY CAFTAN USING SIMPLICITY 8505

HI DARLINGS! Happy Monday, I hope you are enjoying the long weekend. I will be on the road this week on a family trip, so I am packing and getting things in order. I had enough time to get some sewing done so I could post the remaining looks in my #DIYYELLOWCOLLECTION while I am away.

Today’s DIY Caftan look makes me feel very glamorous LOL! I want to stand outside and wait for my chariot to pull up, ha! I have wanted to make this caftan pattern by SIMPLICITY for so long, and I thought what better time than during the yellow collection. I plan to make this again for the summer in a challis. More details on my pattern and fabric below.

DIY CAFTAN INFO & MODIFICATIONS

This is SIMPLICITY #8505 which is a SIMPLICITY vintage pattern that they brought back. I have the original vintage pattern too. This is a really easy pattern and comes together really quickly. What is great is that you don’t need to do much fitting, lol its pretty loose fitting lol! I plan to make this again in a fun print.

The fabric is a pebble crepe from MICHAEL LEVINE (sold out but similar options HERE or HERE) It has great texture but it is very sheer so I wore a nude slip underneath.
