Caftan Conversion

As part of our continuing series on reducing, reusing, and recycling, I wanted to explain how easy it is to utilize items that you find at Goodwill to make a bold statement in your home. Perhaps you’ve gone by an item at the Goodwill store and thought, “I really like that fabric, too bad it’s not my size (style, or other term for “not quite right for me”). Don’t walk by. Take another look at the fabric and try to imagine what else could be made from it. That’s the story I have with this olive and tangerine patterned caftan I found at the Goodwill store for $4.99. For some reason I was just drawn to the bright, cheerful colors, and also liked the white contrast piping on the sleeves. I almost kept walking, but then I realized there was a lot of great cotton fabric there. So I took it home and pondered just what to do with it.
