Make your own Matthew Williamson kaftan (from a free pattern)

It is not always one stumble upon a free pattern on the web. I found one and it is to make a Matthew Williamson (he is a British fashion designer) kaftan. I found it on here Make your own kaftan It’s a newspaper article online not another one of those sign your life (email address) away links. I don’t monetize on it by the way. I found this pattern way before I started blogging. I made it with lightweight silk fabric and the result turn out to be pretty good and amazing. It is quite easy to make which is even better. I didn’t have to do much fit as it is quite loose fitting.

I got the fabric Ratti silk factory located in Guanzate near Lake Como, Italy. They are one of big silk manufacturers there and their fabrics are amazing. I was there on holiday decided to go Lake Como as I love fabrics a lot. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on nice silk fabrics. Did some google search, some trips to places that didn’t exist anymore and finally got to the tourist information office. There I twisted their arm and got the information and directions of Ratti factory out from them and took the bus there. I just couldn’t home empty handed!! And bought a few silk fabrics there. A great place to visit if you are visiting Lake Como. They have now got a website and online store called carnetfabrics. I have hashtag them on instagram so nice of them acknowledge eh?

Closer look to the top I made. I wore it with a linen pants from Gap. Sunglasses by Versace.

I wore it while on holiday to Marrakesh, Morocco and it was great for the hot weather as it’s loose fitting, made out of light airy fabric.

Top I made wore it while on a holiday in Morocco. I love Marrakesh market as one could haggle when you buy stuff. It’s a must to haggle. Worn with GAP linen trousers , Birkenstock sandals and bag is from Marc Jacobs

I even wore it while hiking as I hate wearing the design of hiking clothes. As it’s silk it has got good wicking content. Pants from Northface and sunglasses from Versace.

Me on a hike to the foothills of Mount Toubkal. I wore it with a North face hiking pants
