Chloé Wrap / Cape Tutorial


So while I was writing the 6 Runway Trends You Need to Wear this Fall,

I was completely in love with Chloé’s pre-fall collection for 2014 this season.
The bias trim binding along all those cool wraps and coats were just divine!

Then I spotted the blue wrap, and I thought,

um, hello?! I can make that!

And guess what? I DID.

But you know LA and it’s beautiful weather, it’s been so crazy warm this winter, I had to wait FOREVER to make this!!

The wait was killing me!!
Love the dramatics going on here? haha!

So anyways, it’s pretty easy to do,
the binding part was probably the most annoying because you want to make sure it doesn’t ripple weirdly when you sew it on
(I don’t often use a lot of binding for what I do around here),
and with this pattern there’s lot’s of wiggle room, which I will explain later.

Fantastically simple, right?

It’s a wrap, cape, robe all in one!

You can wear it open and it gives a more robe like feature,

The scarf feature is très cool and give off a cape like effect,

Now here’s the wiggle room…

The wrap dimension’s are all approximate lengths,
the reason being is because we call come in different lengths and sizes.
I am not a huge fan of the one size fits all because it’s not always the case, right?

So if you like it longer because you are taller, do it!
The opposite for my petites.

I have broad shoulders and I am about 5’7″, so these measurements worked great for me!

Whatever the case, both the scarf and wrap will be cut on the same fabric when you lay everything out.
Cut out your scarf first and play around with the rest of the fabric to determine your ideal length and width!

Make sense?

That’s it for this week!
I am attending and selling at the Mermade Market this upcoming week at Dana Point, CA so I will have fun with that!
If you are in the area, come visit me, I will be hanging out on thursday and saturday.

The market will be open with all my goodies like ceramics, scarves, clutches, and jewelry like my earrings below!

    You always do an excellent job with your DIY projects and sewing projects. That wrap coat is gorgeous and I love that it has a turtleneck. You also chose such a beautiful, soft blue for it, Reva. Looking magnificient, as usual. With having 4 kids, I don;t know how you do it all, bella mamma. Show us your ways.

    Happy Monday! <3 Ada.

    What a beautiful cape and thanks for the tutorial! I have the sewing abilities of a 2 year old, but I’m definitely going to see if my roommate can sew something like this for me. I’m so into capes, but never think they are too appropriate for Texas weather. After seeing this, I may just have to get one!
