Vogue 8783 - Small Purse
Yesterday was an exceptionally busy day, but I did manage to finish up the purse! The purse is actually pretty easy to make, and even with my extra parts it finished quickly.
I added tabs and D-rings to the side at the bands. This made it a bit thicker when doing the final stitching of the purse and lining, especially because of the faux leather, but it turned out nicely.
I then made a strap for the purse. I cut a strip three times the finished width, interfaced the middle third, folded each side over the center and then edge stitched and top stitched to finish. This produced a flatter and sturdier strap than if I would have made a tube, turned it and top stitched it. I added the clips and it was done and ready to attach to the purse.
My daughter is happy with it, and has already figured out an outfit to wear with it!
Parting Shot: Vintage Simplicity 3447. This is one of my latest pattern purchases and it will be used for costumes for a dance ensemble of eight girls. The director wants red dresses with collars and black belts, so it should be a fun project.
