Rated 2 out of 5 by Lilly123 A cool wrap, but not glamorous
Light and airy is one way of looking at the fabric, but one might also say flimsy and a bit cheap looking and scratchy. It wrinkles easily and is not ready-to-wear coming out of the package. You'd probably want wash it and let it dry on a hanger with overall wrinkles rather than ironing, because the fabric does not seem like the type that would resist wrinkling. The embroidery is nice, and looks especially attractive on the navy or black photos. It was not available in my size, so I got the teal, and it just didn't look like anything special. The sizing was generous to say the least. I'm usually a PM, but got this in a small I think, and it was huge on me.
I was disappointed to not like it well enough to keep. But, 5 stars for prompt customer service!

I thought I had orderd it in Aqua and received Coral instead. I could have lived with that but the quality of the cotton was inferior. I purchased it on sale but originally at $74 it was too high. I just returned it.

I love this caftan, yesterday it was 88 degrees outside and i played with my grandchildren in a park~ Just wearing this over a light cotton romper was perfect :-) it has a slit on one side for easy stride and the embroidery is beautiful!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Pinacolada Not a high-quality product
The fabric used in this caftan is closer to a gauze than a good quality cotton broadcloth or similar. When I first took it out of its wrapper, I held it up by the shoulders and could see through the two layers. Not the sort of thing I choose to wear to run to the mailbox or entertain friends on the patio. It was returned immediately. Norm Thompson used to mean quality clothing. I guess it doesn't any longer.

Caftan looks just like pic. Runs long, so had to have it shortened. Material nothing unusual or exotic...plain old cotten. Expensive for what it is.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MissMargaret Pretty....but.....
Detailing is beautiful, and very striking. My objection is that the fabric is a bit too thin--it's nice to have it lightweight for summer, but I think it is just a little bit TOO sheer. Not for see-through, but just not very substantial-feeling. Others may like it, though, it definitely would be cool on a hot summer day, or night.

Rated 3 out of 5 by akjs This caftan is light & attractive
The style is comfortable & the product, very well made. However, the fabric isn't smooth or flowing like I wanted it to be. It came out of the dryer wrinkled & not soft.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bobolink69 Cool and comfortable
This caftan is good looking with the embroidery detail pretty neatly done. Does have to be pressed to really look good if that is important to you.
