Looks great! I think I will size down when I make mine. Love the leather and lining together.

Lori - Great bag! Good review. If you were to redo it, exactly how much smaller would you make it? Trudy recommends 50% for a smaller, "evening bag." I have two teenage girls who want this bag for Christmas. As drafted, it is too big for them. So, I was wondering what size you would recommend?

Lovely bag. I have sized my pattern down to 75% but I think that I will make some more adjustments.

Mary, I would go down 50% at least for my 2 teenage dds. My girls carry smaller bags and would like the evening bag size for daily use.

Too bad this bag is the only thing being reviewed by this pattern company. Great bag and review. Thank you

Lori - Thanks for the advice. I will do a 50% for the girls. The next question is, can I use upholstrey velvet and fake fur? Will that make the purse too stiff at 50%?

Great bag! I went to download the pattern and it was no longer on the hotpatterns. com site. Anyone know where I can get a downloadable copy?
