Chloe by Victory patterns

With our meeting with Kristiann Boos of Victory patterns looming, I decided to sew Chloe version 2, with sleeves. 

 

Melbourne weather being a changeable affair, I needed to make this up in a classic fabric – navy with white polka dots in cotton. I can wear any shoes with this fabric.

The lace used for the sleeves is a remnant so I was very careful to cut out plenty so you can see the flowers on both sleeves. Acetate bias was used as were some largish shiny white buttons.

Adjustments
Roll shoulder, sway back, check pocket depth, check hem length and lastly check the dart point.

 Thanks to my niece for taking these pics of her Aunty wearing Chloe.

The littlest niece was making faces to make me laugh. It worked. They are smart girls.
Minerva Crafts has a huge range of fabric with dots of all shapes and colours. I used dots in the search field and I’m still looking through their huge range of dot fabrics, buttons, bows….

  1. I really like this pattern – so many opportunities for colour blocking or piping along the seams. I love your fabric choices, blue polka dots are timeless, and you're right any colour shoe would work (I can see a nice red heel working well!)
