Nothing says summer elegance quite as well as a dramatic caftan. Charlie is a fresh take on this warm weather staple.

All versions feature a deep V neckline, short dolman sleeves, inset center panel and roomy pockets. View A is modern and architectural with striking pleats beneath the bust. For a softer, more romantic dress, Views B & C feature a gently gathered bodice with an optional waist tie for a figure-skimming silhouette in two skirt lengths. You may also choose between a dramatically wide sleeve, or one slightly higher cut for more coverage.

Sizes: 0-20 and 14-30 (PDF) and 0-20 (Print only)

Model notes: Our model Myriam is 5'-9" and wears a size 10 from the 0-20 size range. Vanessa is 5'-10" and wears a size 18 from the 14-30 range.
