Q & As

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect I love this kaftan so much I bought it in the white and pink. So many kaftans are very low at the bust and very short, which is not great if you'e a little bit older and don't want to flash the flesh so much, this has a modest neckline and perfect length (just above the knees on me and I'm 5' 4"). I disagree with other reviewers about the embroidery only being at the front, I think it would be too heavy all round. Only issue was the sleeves - I made them cap length as full length too hot for abroad. Please John Lewis do it again next year in black and other colours! 24 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by JL Embroidered Kaftan, white A really lovely, good quality, pretty garment,. I wore several times on a recent sailing holiday and it was very versatile over a swimming costume or as a dress in the evening. 14 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Flatterimh kaftan Loved wearing this kaftan a good length and very important, it washed well didn't crease in my beach bag and was thick enough not to be see through. 14 July 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by John Lewis Embroidered Kaftan Lovely from the front but.......overpriced considering the flimsy material. Unfortunately, l had to send it back which was a shame because it would have been just what l was looking for. 29 April 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by So Disappointed The front of this kaftan is beautiful - what a pity the back is so flimsy and very see through. Please reconsider the design and have the back the same as the front. 14 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lady In White The front of this is beautiful and it is light for your weight allowance. However, the back is thinner and I'm not sure how it will look with a wet costume under it. It also comes up a bit small, so for ease, I bought a size larger. 01 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by good quality but... I loved the front of this well made Kaftan but the back was very thin and very see thru which I couldn't see the point of. Such a shame as the front was really nice. 18 June 2014
