I love baggy blouses. You can wear them super loose on hot days, just milling around the house, or cinch them in to show people you actually have a waist. I mean, they aren’t the most flattering of tops when you have a bust, but I love them. So when I was packing up all my fabric (cry) I decided to procrastinate a little more by quickly running up a no pattern 20 min Kaftan.
I have a 1m piece of cotton. I pinned the selvages together, and trimmed the two sides to ensure the were even, then hemmed them.
I didn’t hem the bottom edges because they have a nice texture to them which I liked. Also, they don’t fray, so added bonus!
Then I refilled the fabric down the centre, and folded it again widthwise to find the centre. I used this point to cut a boat neckline.
I used some of the fabric I had trimmed from the edge as a bias binding, and finished the neckline.
Then, to finish, I sewed up each side seam, leaving about 25cm for the armholes.
Pop on a belt to cinch in, and voilà! Super easy summer Kaftan with neither a pattern or too much time taken up!
