Making Vintage Bags: 20 Original Sewing Patterns for Vintage Bags and Purses Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fashion-conscious ladies love their purses—and vintage is todays key couture look. These bags draw inspiration from the elegance, glamour, and sophistication of styles popular in the 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s, so theyre as exquisite as anything in a fine boutique…but at a fraction of the cost. There are 20 original projects in total (five per era) and they have wonderful details like beaded ring handles, three-dimensional trims, whimsical appliqués, and eye-catching prints. Go for art deco styling, slimline clutches, tapestry bags, and gathered ones with felt corsages. Plus, each handbag has a pretty matching purse pattern to go along with it. All the patterns have seam allowances added already to make things easy, and sewers will find everything they need to know to take their choice from beautiful idea to finished item.

Synopsis:

As every fashion conscious girl knows you can never have too many bags and vintage is a key look from couture to high street. The bags in this book draw inspiration from the 20s - 50s. The 20 projects are suitable for all levels and there are four matching purse designs that can be adapted to any bag. Patterns and seam allowances are also included. Patterns for all the bags are included and all have seam allowances added already so that the book is not just inspirational, it's practical too, providing everything you need to know to take your bag from being a beautiful idea to a finished item. The bags are made from easily acquired materials using straightforward techniques and come in a range of beautiful shapes that give them a really stunning and unique look.
