As one who tends to make things up as I go along, I was rather intrigued to try out this genuinely vintage Vogue pattern from 1952. I chose a beautiful barkcloth for the outer and a sumptuous 'Daisy Chain' Pat Albeck print. Mixing up the decades a bit but a lovely combination for a retro bag, don't you think?
I must say it was a bit fiddly to make as the flap was integral to the back piece. I think I might try tweaking the pattern for next time, as I like the general shape. I'll make it with a separate flap that I attach with its lining already in place as I do with my "Marigold" bag. Not so much in Vogue as in progress, I'd say! Come back for an update...
