Pattern Description:

The Rachel Bag is a shoulder bag that gets its fun, retro-style look from its top and bottom pleats. Whether it's in memory of your youth or in order to lead in the returning fashion of the vintage, this cute and slightly dorky looking bag is a lovable piece to have in your bag collection. In keeping with this retro-style, one suggestion when making this bag is that you could use a fabric with a regular pattern rather than an irregular one, as the latter tends to fit into a more modern-day category.
