Dragonfly Fabrics Giveaway – Sew This Dress

dragonfly fabrics japanese cotton

I’ve made another Charlie Caftan – and so could you!

Dragonfly Fabrics kindly provided me with this swoon-worthy Japanese cotton. You can see the full range here. It’s the perfect weight for a transitional caftan, just heavy enough and warm enough to carry a person into Autumn. If you raise the cut of the sleeves, this dress twins happily with a cardie. Wear a slip beneath and you can pull on tights or leggings, too.

Best of all? The fabric barely creases with wear.

For perfect pattern matching, baste together the bodice centre seam before sewing.

The knee-length caftan takes 2.5 metres of Japanese cotton. 2.5 metres that you could have for free! Not enough? Okay, we’ll throw in a copy of the Charlie Caftan pattern, too.

See? You could replicate this entire outfit. (Dog not included.)

To enter this giveaway for 2.5 metres of Japanese cotton and the Charlie Caftan pattern, all you need to do is sign up to the Did You Make That fortnightly newsletter here. The deadline to enter is midnight GMT Thursday 13 September.
