The original Limited Edition caftan makes a comeback (after 8 years!) with all new features- think front-facing zipper, new belting options, amazing new fabric, and a helpful sleeve 'MOD'ification. This classic staple (that belongs in every closet) can be worn out for cocktails or cruising the beachside boardwalk.
FLOWING n FABULOUS! The luxurious airy finish on this flowy fabric will make a statement at any soireé. Got guests or will be one somewhere soon? This style screams hostess and hotel guest! Impress the masses with the crepe-like feel on the fabric that's a smooth as silk. The year round colors cast a beautiful sheen that's meant to be seen.
BELT IT OUT! Watch the video below to see this in action! (*This video is from the prior run of this style in another fabric option, but the concepts are exactly the same!)
There's 3 ways to create a cooler silhouette on this creation.
1) BELT TO BOW- pull the belt through both openings (front and back) and knot into a bow at front for a cinched effect. (FYI- the original version only had this option)
2) BELT SOLO- Pull the belt behind your back so it is touching the back of your actual waist. Pull the belt ends through the front belt opening only and knot at the front to show off your curves.
3) BELT IT OUT- Wrap the belt completely around your body at waist without tucking in to the belt openings. Lift excess fabric over belt for a looser, relaxed vibe ( also a great option for petite frames to lift this maxi off the ground).
PSA: Pregnant mamas and plus size ladies can wear this too thanks to its cool cut. Consider the belt placement to emphasize the curves you want to show off.)
4) BELT IT OFF- Skip the belt and aim to be effortless in this long column caftan.
PSA AGAIN -We love the matching belt that comes with this caftan, but also think any skinny belt with a pop of color/finish (like the gold #linearLINKBELT from our ACCESSO-RISS section) would work with this maxi!
ZIP-ITY DO DA! Keep it fun and flirty, or consider it extremely nursing friendly when you wear this front-facing zipper both ways. Keep it up (all the way) or unzip a bit and tuck in the upper corners for a 'V'ery airy vibe. (FYI again- this is another new update to the #linearLECAFTAN based on customer feedback!)
SLEEVE IT 2 ME! Many modest minded customers have mentioned that they wished for an additional option to keep the loose, flowy sleeves at bay when they lift their arms up high. We added a small tack to the ends of the 'sleeve' as a MODification for those that want it. Are you a 'go with the flow' gal? It's easy to open the tacks. A seam ripper or small nail scissors can loosen the threads that keep the sleeve 'closed'. We sleeve it up to you to decide which option you prefer.

The newest version of the LIMITED EDITION CAFTAN (aka LE CAFTAN) comes with three updates.
1) Front facing zipper- excellent option for nursing moms or great if you prefer a 'V' neck look which is accomplished by unzipping about an inch and tucking in the end corners.
2) Additional belt holes-This version has two seperate belt openings on each side which allows the wearer to belt the dress all the way around, or through just the front belt openings.
3)Tacked sleeves- Some customers mentioned that the sleeves on the original version exposed their elbows when lifting their arms high (this is the result of the loose flutter sleeve design of most caftans). While some chose to wear a slip with sleeves under, others wanted an easier closed option. We created a 'faux' sleeve opening by 'tacking' (aka sewing) a few threads close together to keep the sleeve closed when you are moving around. If you prefer the flowy, loose fit of the original, it is easy to 'untack' the sleeves with a seam ripper or small nail scissor at your own discretion. Please keep in mind, once this is done, this style is non returnable even if it is within the return time window.
The fit is slightly different than the original verion from 2014. This style is a straight cut that is meant to be slightly roomy for ease of movement. It is not meant to be fitted, nor is it A-line. However, it does flair outwards just slightly from the waist/hips area down. See the size chart below for fit recommendations based on multiple customer try-ons. Many have said the the true size was roomy, but did not feel oversized, which is the intended style of a caftan (it's not meant to be a fitted style.) If you are petite or a much smaller size on the bottom, you can size down. For example, if you are 8 at top, but 4 at the bottom, you can opt for the small instrady of the medium. If the size is prefaced with the word 'SMALL', then it means you are narrower on bottom. If your size number overlaps, opt for the next size up for some extra wiggle room.
LENGTH/WIDTH GUIDE: Approximate lengths from shoulder to front hem at its shortest point. All measurements are taken when dress is on a flat surface. Approximate chest/hips measurements are measured across. Double for complete circumference.
GUIDE TO FINDING YOUR MEASUREMENTS:
LENGTHS- Place a measuring tape at the center point of one of your shoulders (Also known as HPS- High Point Shoulder). The '0' (zero) on the tape should be your starting point. Drop the tape and let it hang. It helps to look in a full length mirror to determine the length that suits you (If you prefer above, on or below the knee). For reference, average lengths (depending on your height) fall between 37-41inches on size XS. Since everyone's torso/leg lengths are different (even if two people are the same height), coverage length can never be exact. For all styles, we list the approximate lengths of our dresses measured from HPS. Please check the lengths to see if they work for you.
WIDTHS: Chest- Position the '0' (zero) of the measuring tape underneath one armpit aligning it as much as possible with the center part of your bust. Wrap around the circumference of your chest area until the tape matches point zero from the backside. Keep in mind that knits (stretchy styles) can accommodate widths that are broader than the listed dimensions due to fabric forgiveness, while wovens (fabric with minimal or no stretch) will only 'give' to a certain point. Usually, patterns are adjusted to work for sizing when the fabric is woven.
Hips- Repeat steps for measuring Chest, but start at the widest point of hips.
Arms- Repeat steps for measuring Chest, but start under armpit and measure around biceps. For arm length, measurements on the caftan are taken from the HPS (where the shoulder meets the neckline) down to the end of the sleeve.
