I feel very Polyphonic Spree in this. Printed navy blue kaftan, my final purchase last Saturday from the German lady (see below), £3. It’s actually quite snug-fitting and slinky, and works as a maxi-dress with a wide belt, the neck unzipped a little and a pair of knee-length boots or high heels. But will I be brave enough? What great kaftan-wearing fashion role models are there besides Mama Cass Elliott, Demis Roussos or David Crosby at his most bloated? It’s a dangerous path to go down without a trim waist.
