a beachy kaftan,....

let me start by saying that it is currently 5 degrees at our house.


however,. the postman delivered a package this morning containing 1 vintage seersucker tablecloth.


a tablecloth i had bought to make a kaftan with.


what's a girl to do but make that kaftan!


it is a very simple design (check out the lovely 'beach vintage' blog for instructions) consisting of a vintage lace doilie and a seersucker tablecloth.


here is the gorgeous design on the tablecloth i used.



and here is the finished product!


so.....  even though it is 6 degrees outside, i know what i will be wearing (in the comfort of my centrally heated house), when i drink my 'summer' gin&tonic tonight!
