These bags draw inspiration from the elegance, glamour, and sophistication of styles popular in the 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s, so they’re 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.
