Beautiful Airy Linen
I recently created a men's caftan for myself as I wanted something light and airy to wear on a recent trip to Tulum, Mexico. This fabric was the lightest I could find online yet it wasn't too sheer. It sewed incredibly well as I did 26 rows of tuck pleats along the front neckline. It even held up small eyelets for the suede lacing! I am very pleased with choosing this beautiful handkerchief Irish linen. My one request is that it should be offered in more color options. A black or deep indigo navy would be beautiful! I've gotten so many great compliments on it!
