Bob Mackie's Embroidered Zip Front Short Sleeve Caftan
I love Bob Mackie's caftan! I am a QVC medium, and the medium fits beautifully. The black is quite elegant. I feel special to be able to relax at home adorned in such lovely embroidery and perfect style.
Love it EXCEPT...
it's beautifully finished and has really flattering shape however I was VERY disappointing at the fabric! It reminded me of the old 1970s era type polyester. It was disappointing, but I love all the rest of it so will keep it. It's a little pricey considering the fabric used. I'm very short so it hits me at the ankles, which is fine with the slit in front.
I purchased this caftan in aqua to use as a summer robe. I love it! When my mother saw it she wanted one too and I ordered her the turquoise. I am usually a 10 and the small is perfect. My mother is usually a 14/Large, but in this the medium fit well. We haven't washed them yet and I'm going to try it in the washing machine on gentle cycle as I'm not a hand washer. I'm hoping I will be as pleased after washing as I am now. I enjoy wearing it and feel very pretty.
BLESS YOU Bob Mackie for putting pockets in this caftan. I bought it because of the pockets and then found out that it was so very beautiful. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT.
This is my first Bob Mackie purchase. I got it in black. Am plus sized and it's gorgeous. it's very comfortable and l like the short sleeves. You won't be sorry if you get one.
Sleeves an issue
The design of this caftan is very nice . The sleeves , however, make it look VERY MATRONLY . Was going to order several colors, but just got the one, so now I only have to return one !
I was going to rate it 3 stars , but that should mean that I was keeping it.
Soft & very comfortable.
The knit fabric is soft, smooth, silky and great against the skin. Perfect for mornings, sitting down for a cup of tea, just starting you day. Or just as good on a cruise, in your cabin or going to the pool. The embroidery is beautifully done (of course, it's a Bob Mackie!). The flutter sleeves are ok, not usually my favorite, but comfortable here. I bought the turquoise, and just love it.
I JUST RECEIVED MY CAFTAN TODAY IN ORCHID. IT IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL AND JUST WHAT I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR. I LIVE IN FLORIDA AND HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR SOMETHING LIGHTWEIGHT AND VERY WRINKLE RESISTANT, SOMETHING TO THROW ON AND STILL LOOK LIKE A LADY. THE SLEEVES ARE ALSO PERFECT THEY ARE KIND OF FLOATING AND COME ABOVE THE ELBOW. IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL BE EASY TO WASH AND WEAR. THE SLIT IN THE FRONT MAKES IT VERY EASY TO CURL UP ON THE SOFA...OR EVEN WEAR AS A POOL COVER-UP. THE EMBROIDERY IS BEAUTIFULLY DONE. THE FIT IS GREAT. I ORDERED MY NORMAL SIZE IN IT IS PERFECT. WILL BE ORDERING ANOTHER...GUESS I'LL GET DRAMATIC AND ORDER THE BLACK ONE. JUST LOVE IT LADIES!!!
Elegant In Black
This is an easy care caftan that doesn't wrinkle, has great body, and the sleeves don't get in the way! The embroidery is beautifully done. I would love to have this same design in other deep, gem tone colors.
Worse than potato chips...
...you can't just have one! I got the beautiful coral and my order for black and for aqua is in process. For those of us who feel we have no shoulders, or have slumpy shoulders, the rouching at the sleeve-shoulder seam is great and makes your shoulders look more squared off. I only get this look with shoulder pads normally, and who wants to wear should pads when lounging? I was afraid the material would be hot when I first laid eyes on it, as I wouldn't call this "jersey" myself, but it is not hot. I justified the purchase by telling myself they will look and feel great when recovering from upcoming surgery. They are beautiful and well made.Good thing I don't think I look good in orchid, or I would probably get that one too!
QUEEN OF THE NILE
LOVE THE SOFTNESS AND TEXTURE OF THE FABRIC SEWN TO PERFECTION MY FIRST BOB MACKIE LUV IT FEEL LIKE A QUEEN
I bought two of these Caftans in Pink and Black and they are beautifully well made and just as beautiful to wear around the house or when company comes and you want something nice on when you are relaxing.. The fabric is a heavier weight polyester that will be great to wear in the winter time and you can always wear a long sleeve underneath to keep warmer.
I think these Caftans are very pretty and well made.
