This purse was a lot more challenging than I originally expected. I didn’t use any pattern, and it took me about 4 days to make, but I’m really really happy with the way it turned out. I decided on the pleats and buttons because of a picture I saw of a purse that I liked, and for the inside I just thought about what I needed it to have (a pocket for my cell phone and keys, a good, thick lining that won’t rip, and a zipper to ward off pickpockets in the metro) and kind of winged it. Oh, and I love the buttons I found at Corte Inglés.
Sturdy brown striped fabric (I don’t know the names of anything), chocolate brown thick lining, zipper, cute buttons.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
