Charlie Caftan by Closet Case Patterns

Sewing Level: Advanced Beginner

Fabric: I've used an Ikat, a polyester chiffon from Spoonflower and a Cotton + Steel rayon. They all work great. 

I made size and View (if applicable): Size 12, Short white ikat is View A, Short black floral dress is View B with ties, Long dress is View C with ties. 

My mods: The white Charlie has the neck facing sewn to the outside. The short floral is fully lined. 

Description: Short sleeves, caftan style dress. Faced neckline, waist cinching treatment. Long view has side vents/slits.

Notes: This is a favorite dress to wear for me. It's very comfortable. Don't let that waist feature intimidate you! It's straightforward to sew. My first videos are a little rough as I was just getting my stream going and the short floral version may be a little unique with the lining but I explain this thoroughly. I recommend the short floral video over the others but you can watch the green floral dress video for the wait part if you like (it's the second one above).
