A great shoulder bag Pattern Sizing:
Standard Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Very much so.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Most of the time yes, but I struggled at a stupid point more to the fact I have never used a pattern before, or a sewing machine!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the fact the handles are integral and not added later.. my first attempt of this bag has survived my work files and diary. A "robust" bag which I can add design ideas to.
I used a suiting material for the outside and a nice simple cotton for the lining.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
This is the second one I have made so I experimented by adding pockets to the lining and flowers and embroidery to the outside.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Once made this is a great practical bag. If I can make it, anyone can!
PS: Hook and Loop tape is velcro!
