Let's forget about the leggings and sleeveless t-shirts! After all, they only look good on few people... A much better option for a long, hot summer is the caftan. The proof of this is the Mediterranean culture. They have known there for ages what is nice and cool in the summer: the wide caftan. But a caftan is more than just a baggy baggy dress. A caftan is always beautifully finished with embroidered edges, fringes and different shapes/lengths. The caftan is simply beautiful, classy and timeless.
And easy to make yourself!
If you want to know how to make this caftan: the work-description, with a lot of pictures is on BERNINA Blog. It is unfortunately in the Dutch language, but with the help of Google translations, it's probably no problem at all.
