This is made of burnt orange fabric bought from the decoration section of the store. It loos like velvet and has a very interesting texture. I planned to make a simple purse for everyday use without any trimming but it was a bit of failure: The purse’s nap and the band’ s nap was opposite to each other at the back of the purse. This is something I knew from the begginning but couldn’t find a way to fix it, as the main purse is just one piece without seam at the bottom (I have tried the same design with seam at the bottom and it doesn’t drape nicely). I just hopped that It would look ok…. It did’t!:) Plus the seam between the purse and the band was a mess.
I tried to fix it with some lace to cover the mismatched nap and the bad seam. I like the final result except the lining which is green because I had sewn it already before adding the black details. What do you think?
