Is anybody else lusting over the new Chloe advert (or is that just me and my friends?) The girl on the left, the red trousers, the cream top with lace detail. I LOVE it!
As Chloe is a little out of my price range the top is £870 and the trousers £585 and both are already sold out on Net-a-porter (so I am not the only one who wants this outfit) I decided to have a go at making my own version of this outfit.
So far I have made the top using a simple long sleeve blouse, with a single button fastening at the back and long billowing sleeves. I used ivory crepe fabric for the blouse then double layered the front section with ivory lace fabric. The Chloe one has a nude lining and Ecru sleeves but I wanted something a little brighter. I couldn't find a simple blouse pattern like this anywhere (let me know if you have found one) I ended up drafting my own.
I am still debating the red trousers, for now I will wear the top with a pair of black trousers and red suede shoes.
Happy sewing xxx
