Only this time it isn't for me but for David, no that is actually not quite right, it is for Dashwood Studios. David asked me a few months back whether I would like to make something with their new collection "September Blue" that debuted in July.
I was delighted to be asked but didn't fancy making a quilt and suggested an item of clothing. And that is how the second Shearwater Kaftan came about. The first one was made from a gorgeous double gauze.
The fabric was wonderful to work with and I loved sewing it (again !). Admittedly it has been ready some months and I don't know how it happened but I forgot to blog about it (shame on me). I sent it off and forgot all about it until had a look through some pictures.
This is such a lovely and easy pattern and I am sure it won't be the last kaftan I have made.
