Unisex Caftan- Irish Stripe Linen
With Covid-19 keeping us in lockdown most of the time, caftans are becoming a wardrobe staple. I make mine as a simple poncho style- hemmed on all four sides, and a stitch line up each side that makes a 58" circumference tube to give you ample room to move freely, provided your largest measurement is up to 54". A long keyhole neck ties with 3 sets of long ties. And...it has POCKETS!
The Short length measures 34" from shoulder to hem, and the Long caftan (pictured) measures 52". Stand in front of your mirror with a measuring tape and see if one of those standard lengths suits you. While you're there, check to see how the 46" width will suit you as a sleeve length. Put the tape in the center of your neck and extend it out your arm to see where half that (23") falls on your arm. Custom orders are available, but only in length, since most fabrics have a maximum width of 46".
The fabric is a medium weight 100% linen, pre-washed. Machine wash in warm water, tumble or line dry.
