This pair from CHLOÉ cost a bomb! How much is a bomb? £1079.11!! I couldn’t pay that kind of money! So I got my leatherette fabric and got down to making my own. Could have made 2 pairs with one metre of cloth but I messed up the first one. Leatherette is not easy to work with. Unlike fabric, unpicking will leave unsightly holes so no allowance for mistakes at all! Any way it is done. Took just about 45 minutes. Hem was left raw since the fabric doesn’t fray.
