I always say that I am going to use a pattern again, and this time I have. This bag is View B from Vogue 8527. This time round I noticed that the seam allowances are 1/2 inch, not 5/8 inch. I've also realised that I sewed the pleats in my previous clutch the wrong way, which was a surprise to me because I made an effort to follow the arrows on the pattern piece and not just do as I thought best.
I used a stretch linen from my stash for the main fabric and La Dolce Vita cotton from Tessuti for the contrast and lining (which I only just bought from their on-line store, but can't seem to find now, perhaps it has sold out). I used a stiff, woven, sew-in interfacing. This bag is a gift, and luckily for the recipient, I don't have a black and white wardrobe. Otherwise I would be tempted to keep it, because it turned out rather nicely, if I do say so myself.
