I am a big fan of the Seamwork online magazine but I have never made any of the patterns yet. When the Mojave kaftan came out I knew I wanted to make it up right away. This was a time when I threw caution to the wind and went with a good fabric, much to my regret.
My other regret is that I forgot to take a photo of my Mojave before I took it apart! I thought I had but nope; you'll just have to take my word for it. It was too wide on top for me and the shoulders kept sliding off. I pondered modifying it by pulling the center seam in but somehow that didn't feel right neither. So I took the idea to sleep to maul over - bad idea too as I kept tossing and turning trying to figure out a solution. I woke up the next morning very sleepy eyed but with a solution - I will turn it into one of my TNT patterns: a Wiksten Tova!
Cherry Blossom from the Monaluna Haiku line.
I would like to try the Mojave again but I would definitely play around with the bodice/neckline first.
