The bag was always going to be a dainty little thing and I’d practically settled for Hot Patterns Crepe Suzette clutch until our dear friend and exceptional stylist, Rhonda, found just the right one on Sew Vera Venus, where you can find all sorts of vintage inspired patterns for all sorts of things and they’re all downloadable and free as well! Thanks Vera!
Mine’s nothing to write home about – Rhonda made her’s in gold leather and it’s absolutely stunning – really professional. Vera’s sample is made in black suede. This one is merely crimson taffeta to match the hat.
Made with just 5 pattern pieces, it is cute and pretty. The bag hangs from the wrist, which is also the closure so it’s hands free and no additional haberdashery required.
Lined in self fabric, I added an brooch for some bling and that’s about it.
It’s tiny! I’ve never owned a bag so small and a complete contrast to the huge hat.
