retro brown kaftan

So in one of the summer Burdastyle magazines they had a white kaftan. Made from two giant semi-circles of fabric, and slits cut and hemmed (front piece to back piece) to make sleeves and the rest just caught round the waist, leaving a nice pleated gathered skirt. I made it in this heavily patterned cotton. It looks kindof vintage-y because it's such an old fashioned print.
It risks to look a little frumpy so i always have to wear it with high sandals and nice earrings so that it is "intentionally" old-fashioned looking and not just frump-tastic, which was superD's initial reaction when he saw it!!
O well - can't please them all!
