I had this nice basic gray cardigan but the binding was starting to fray and come apart. I also had a bin full of vintage scrap fabric from my great aunt. Inspiration struck and I decided to replace the frayed binding with a scrappy pieced one.
This summer is turning out to be the summer of the caftan for me. Last week I shared a caftan hack of Lou Box Dress 1 pattern. And today, I have a fantastic, tropical Charlie Caftan to share. This year I’ve only sewn one garment with a zipper so I’m definitely into a the comfort zone with my me-mades. And, I’ll be spending a week long vacation in Hawaii this month so I’m planning to spend a lot of time in caftans. My skin is super sensitive to the sun so I always cover up as much as possible and this year, the caftan will be my go-to for chic coverage.
