Vintage Pattern Review – Caftan & Shorts

Here’s another vintage look I created for Pittsburgh Fashion Week.  It’s also ‘Take II’ of vintage Simplicity 7441.  This time I lengthened the pattern to make an ankle length caftan with deep side slits up to the waist and placed the facings on the outside instead of the inside for a cheery splash of color.  The fabric is a lightweight linen-look ivory fabric with a colorful retro stripe cotton for the shorts and facings.

I LOVE how this set turned out and I think that my lovely model Melissa totally rocked it with hot pink sandals and bright bangles!
