Fall 2015 Collection: Meet Corinne!

Glitz Metallic Confetti border print (black and silver) from Michael Miller fabrics
caftan length, three quarter length sleeves

The first clothing reveal for the Fall Collection is the Corinne Caftan. I was inspired by the caftans of days past to create a design that flatters everyone and is comfortable to wear. This design can be worn as tunic length to wear with skinny jeans or leggings, or as caftan length to wear as a dress. The longer length also looks great with leggings. Dress up the look with some tall boots or go casual with flats. The possibilities are endless!

Design options are a cap, elbow, three quarter, or full length sleeve with or without contrasting hem, contrasting front waistband, deep front and back yokes, yoke contrast trim, and a tie belt.

The caftan has a side zipper and princess seaming, which will allow for you to flow from one size to another for a great custom fit.

Chandelier Metallic by Studio M for Moda Fabrics with Moda Bella Solid contrast
Caftan length, full length sleeves with wide contrast, tie belt, & yoke contrast
Note that the solid portions have had a decorative machine stitch in gold metallic thread.

The caftan lends itself well to the use of coordinating fabrics, as you can choose to accent different parts of the design. Be sure to consider border prints, as several of the samples shown were sewn with these types of fabrics. Working with a border print takes a little extra time to plan the cutting, but the results are fantastic!

tunic length, cap sleeves, tie belt, and yoke trim contrast
Note that this sample was worn with leggings, boots, and a long sleeved lace shirt underneath

I think the yokes would be great with some embroidery added, so keep that in mind when you are creating your own special look.
