Love the print with it's cool flamingoes!

This does show off the print wonderfully, even if you don't quite like the cut... maybe shortening the sleeves would help? It does look very nice and airy for summer.

Thanks for that comment, Margaret. Shortening the sleeves about 2cm (or even more) could be a good idea.

The fabric is fantastic and as mentioned above is shown quite well by this style. Definately shorten the sleeves and see if you feel better about it. I hope so.

Oh, and maybe sew up closer under the arm/down the side on the upper bodice as well??

This is a wonderful caftan, and I think it looks great. I would do as others have mentioned and decrease the amount of fabric under your arms, and shorten the sleeves. I can see you relaxing on the veranda now...listening to the lions roar. :-)

It is quite beautiful, but does look a bit droopy. Shortening the sleeves a bit would probably make you happier with it. It does look comfy. I would definitely wear it - often.
