Fabric Project No.3 "Dreamy Butterflies"

Hey, loves!
I have another Fabric Project on the way, this time I gotta be FAST!
This week I'm heading to the beach to celebrate my version of Spring Break, so I'm in desperate need of a swimwear cover-up. I've been looking at stores for a nice silky robe or caftan, but honestly, couldn't find the right match for my style. Not surprisingly, caftans are expensive due to heavy use of yardage, especially if it's natural silk or chiffon.
 So, I'm making it! And I only have two days!!
I found a gorgeous piece of European chiffon with floral/butterfly motif in my studio's drawers. I've been eyeing it for a while now, but couldn't come up with the right plan. Now is the time for it to shine!
I'll be making Diane von Furstenberg inspired caftan for that special beach getaway.

Here's the inspiration:
Diane von Furstenberg chiffon caftan $375 via Net-a-Porter 

And here's my version:

I'll be showing you my finished caftan sometime this week, so stay tuned.
To be Continued...
