This is a very simple Kaftan dress I make. It was less than an hour.
I used Cotton African Print
I measured 2yrds and folded it into 2. Then cut out the neck in the middle and measured the appropriate length I wanted.
I measured my burst divided it into 2 and added 14", I used the total as the width of the dress. Then I measured 7" on both side and did a straight stitch all the was down sewing on the right side of the fabric.
At the bottom I measured 7" and sew it side with right side together. This give it a butterfly kinda look.
