Na tohle šití jsem se chystala už dlouho. Jednak jsem chtěla využít nenošenou sukni a zároveň vyzkoušet střih (Marina 3/2011). Střih je zmenšený tuším na 85%, pár změn jsem provedla, ale jen kosmetické, základ je z Mariny.
I wanted to make this bag for ages. Upcycling is really my kind of thing. I also like to try the patterns on something old in case it does not work out. It's from Czech magazine and I made few little changes. I'm quite happy with the outcome.
I wanted to add some pocket on one side of the bag. As I was trying out the already cut in pieces I got an idea of wide easy accessible pocket. All the sudden from the back side of the bag is the fancy front. For the inside I used cheap fabric from Ikea. There is one full size zipper pocket and little ones on the other side.
The zipper closure is brown and so are the straps. It's out of the bottom of the skirt.
To make the picture complete here is back side of the bag and side view.
Linking up to Purse Palooza and to Something Old, Something New competition.
