What in the world is going on? Never in my life have I heard so many fireworks. And what’s so strange about it is the fact that I’ve been hearing them from a distance for about a month now. Why??? What am I missing? Was there an excessive amount of fireworks activity in your town?
I live in a very quiet neighborhood and you never hear any noise around here. But on the evening of July 4th, it sounded like a real war zone. I’m not taking about cute little fireworks that we used to enjoy as kids. It sounded like they were firing off bombs.
I sat in my bed finishing off the final edits of my latest pattern review video, and every once in a while there was a loud BOOM. Interestingly enough though, I never looked out the window but my son came home and said people were shooting off some serious stuff. I was happy to be safe inside my home.
About The Caftan
The first time I saw this 1970’s Vintage Caftan, I fell in love with it, but didn’t pick up the pattern right away. It’s a re-print of Simplicity 5315. After I started seeing more beautiful versions that the sew sisters were making, I just had to have it. It had already been out for a while and wasn’t available at my local fabric store, so I headed to Walmart to see if I could get lucky. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I found it in the drawer, and in my size. WooHoo!
I was recently gifted this beautiful rayon blend fabric and knew exactly what I would use it for. The pattern and fabric are a perfect marriage and I’m thrilled with the outcome.
It’s very comfortable and easy to sew (if you have basic sewing skills). I will definitely be making another one.
