    I’m assuming the caftan pattern is a one piece in that the bodice and skirt portion are a single piece instead of separate. As far as I’m aware there’s not an easy way to increase the waistline. The only way I’ve seen it done is placing the pattern on a piece of paper, marking on the paper where you want the waistline to be increased and then blending a line from the current bustline to new waistline mark and then blending back to the hipline. Remember the waistline should be 1/4 of the total increase measurement.
    We don’t currently have a tutorial on shortening a sleeve on a lined coat but I did find this article on it and maybe it’ll help. http://nicoleslifeafter20.blogspot.com/2012/05/how-to-shorten-sleeves-with-lining.html
