Morrocan Djellaba Caftan from Folkwear

This loose-fitted, hooded caftan is worn everyday in the Maghreb region of North Africa and Folkwear now its version of this versatile Caftan

Traditionally, they were worn ankle-length and over shirts with or without trousers (for men) and over a caftan for women.  The Djellaba protected the wearer from the desert sun as well as the cold nights. 

The sewing pattern features square sleeves, pockets, and four versions and comes in two lengths: ankle-length (traditional) or upper calf-length. Make it with a zip front or as a pullover then just add your own trim for a one-of-a-kind garment.  It’s perfect as a beach cover up, around the house robe, jacket or simple dress!
