Coral reef: I meant coral Caftan

I was inspired by my sewing mentor To make this fabulous vintage caftan with this pattern. 

  
My sewing mentor posted On Beaute Jadore blog here

The fabric is African Lace gifted to me by a colleague. Yay me!

  
I shorted the pattern 17 inches 

I used the selvage for the decorative scalloped edges it had.

I cut the middle pattern price in half , attached with a 15 inch v neck and faced with …you guessed it the scalloped salvaged edge. 

 
The selvage also became the belt (above)

   

  

  

  

  

  


Now I need an event to wear this to.
