It's called the Sheerwater Kaftan from Make it Perfect.
I fully intended to make it for a weeks holiday we had in Egypt last November, but it didn't happen. It's taken me the full twelve months but at last it's finished, and came on holiday this year instead. Here we are just making our way to a hard day by the pool
It was a nice easy pattern to make, but to be honest I made it a bit small and it was very tight across the top of my arms. And the opening at the front flops down very lazily! If I make it again (unlikely but you never know)I would hand stitch the hems around the bottom and the sleeves, rather than top stitching it at the pattern suggest. The voile fabric is lovely to wear though. And it's another finish for this quarters FAL.
Talking of the holiday, I obly have about 700 photos to show you! No need to panic - I'm not going to show you them all! Just few photo mosaics. We were in The Gambia
