Closet Core Charlie Caftan

This pattern is part of the Closet Case "Rome Collection". It's a pretty genius group of garments that are the makings of a great travel wardrobe (or just a great summer wardrobe). This pattern struck me the most out of all of them. This is my kind of dress... throw it on with a pair of pretty sandles and a bangle and you're good to go. Go to the beach or go out to dinner.

The full sleeve option changes it entirely and now you're creating something elegant and beautiful in top or dress form and it will provide cool coverage in the sun so you'll look great and be sun smart without gooey sunscreen.

(Closet Core was formerly Closet Case)
