It’s all about lace: Buttercup Bag

In two weeks time I am going to a wedding…I couldn’t pass the opportunity for a me-made outfit, could I?

It’s the second time I make a Buttercup Bag. This is the dressy version.

The lace was already featured in the Couture Dress.

And the main fabric is a grey cotton very similar in look and feel to taffeta. You’ll see more of this fabric when I share my finished Colette Crepe I will wear at the wedding.

The lining is a basic sturdy cotton.

Tra due settimane vado ad un matrimonio…quale miglior occasione per un nuovo vestito con borsa coordinata?

Questa e’ la seconda borsa Buttercup che faccio. Stavolta in versione elegante.

Il pizzo e’ lo stesso che ho usato per il vestito Vogue

E la stoffa e’ un cotone simile che assomiglia al taffeta’…vedrete la stoffa di nuovo nel vestito Crepe di Colette che ho scelto per la cerimonia.

La fodera e’ di cotone pesante.

I made a few changes to the pattern instructions: first the pocket is made out of the main fabric. I loved the contrast and I thought it was easier to see.

Since this is an evening bag I omitted the topstitching on the handle and across the top.

What have you been up to this week?

Stavolta ho modificato alcune modifiche al modello…la tasca e’ fatta con la stoffa grigia invece che con la fodera. Mi piaceva il contrasto e ho pensato fosse piu’ facile da vedere.

Ho deciso di omettere le cuciture intorno al manico e sulla parte superiore della borsa perche’ mi sembrava fosse piu’ elegante.

E voi cosa avete fatto di bello questa settimana?

  1. What a beautiful bag, it looks lovely in lace!
    Not much stitching has been going on around here, as my parents and sister have been visiting for the last two weeks. Except for a baby blanket for my newest half sibling… 🙂
