A kaftan cover up is a necessity at every beach holiday. I found this on Pinterest and I wanted the exact same one for mine! After ransacking my stash I found 2 yards of plain turquoise cotton. Great! Now I just need some pom-pom. Strange thing is that I can’t find dark pink pom-pom trims at the local craft stores but got some crochet lace instead.
Just as when I was figuring out the math of the tutorial, I decided to ditch the original and make a rectangle one instead. What I did was to:
- Fold the fabric in half along the selvage and cut out 20cmX30cm on each side. Sew along the edge.
- Fold the half in Step 1 into another half, parallel to the selvage and cut out the neckline. Neaten neckline with biased tape
- Attach the crochet lace along the ‘arm hole’ and the neckline.
All done in 30 minutes!
