Bags are a favourite accessory in every fashion-conscious girl s wardrobe, and because vintage is currently a key look from couture to high street, vintage accessorising is a great way to subtly add style to any outfit. The bags in this book draw inspiration from the elegance, glamour and sophistication of styles from the 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s. There are twenty original projects in total, with five inspired by each era. In addition, there is a purse pattern so that any of the bags in the book can be enhanced with a pretty matching purse. Four purses have been included to show ways to enhance the basic pattern to complement the matching bag. Patterns for all the bags are included in the book 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. They make wonderful unique gifts, or you can make them all for yourself - because as every girl knows, you can never have too many bags!
