Great review! We are all so spoiled by Kwik Sew that it's a surprise when one of their patterns isn't so great. You really did a great job of making it what it should be and it looks great.

Cute review, great recovery on the "man bag". :)

Could the interfacing and such have contributed to the problem of it gaping open? In my experience, hobo bags aren't supposed to be interfaced at all - their floppiness is what makes them take their shape, much like a hammock. I may pick up this pattern and try it without any changes made, just to see how it works. Of course, I always feel the need to make my own assessment of the problem, which is difficult without detailed pictures. I'll probably be shooting myself in the foot (as a poor college student, I probably shouldn't), but I'll end up doing it anyway.
