About the Aurora Kaftan Dress sewing pattern

The Aurora Kaftan Dress has a loose, flowy silhouette that looks great dressed down for a day of errands or dressed up for dinner with friends. 

The pattern has two collar options – a whimsical collar with a front tie or a simple band collar – to make it easy to customize the dress to fit your style.


Make the dress with the optional ruffle hem for a playful, dreamy feel. Or, if you prefer, nix the ruffle to create a straightforward, casual closet basic.

The Details


The Aurora Kaftan Dress has:

• Two collar options: a basic band collar or a band collar with front ties

• A placket with a lightly gathered smock detail

• Short sleeves or long sleeves – your choice!

• An optional ruffle at the hem

• Pockets! Who doesn't love pockets?


The Aurora Dress is a great place to start if you're new to sewing. It comes together relatively quickly and is perfect for an advanced beginner. The placket, ruffle, and smock detail allow you to build your sewing skills in an approachable way, all while creating a beautiful dress that will become a favorite in your summer wardrobe.

Choose Fabric

This sewing pattern can be paired with any light to medium-weight woven fabric.

Choose a very lightweight and fluid fabric such as silk, double gauze, voile, satin, or viscose for a dreamy, flowing look.

Looking for a more casual, daily-wear look? Try linen or woven cotton, such as cotton lawn or poplin.

If a less flowy, slightly structured look is more your style, you might love the Aurora Dress stitched up in a medium-weight woven, such as denim or baby corduroy.

The beauty of making your own wardrobe is all in choosing the fabric, and deciding what collar and sleeves you like option. It all leads to creating pieces that uniquely fit your style perfectly!


How to Style a Kaftan Dress

This versatile Kaftan dress can be styled in many ways to create anything from a casual, headed-to-the-grocery-store look to an elegant date night outfit!

For a casual, everyday summer outfit, perfect for a day on the go, throw on your favorite pair of white sneakers with your Kaftan dress. Add a purse to hold all your essentials, and you're ready to head out!

To put together a dressed-up warm-weather look, great for brunch with the girls or a summer date, pair your Aurora Kaftan dress with a strappy pair of heeled sandals and a delicate necklace.


Sew up your Kaftan dress in a drapey silk, satin, or viscose fabric for an elegant evening outfit. Pair it with heels, a necklace, and earrings.

Your Kaftan dress can even take you into the cooler fall months, especially if you've made it from a thicker fabric such as denim, cotton twill, or corduroy. Just add some cute ankle boots and a jacket!

The Aurora Kaftan dress is a versatile piece that pairs well with various fabrics to create a look that fits your vibe. From a flowy, dreamy look to a structured, casual feel, this dress will be a go-to in your closet.
