Pattern Description:

Inspired by the styles of the early 1950s, these roomy shoulder bags combine a practical size and shape with unique detailing. One version has a pretty pleated overlay at the front to give added texture. It fastens with a long pointed tab/magnetic snap and features a shaped strap. The second version has a stylized flap and pleated external pocket, and a plain shoulder strap. The bags measure approximately 17" wide x 13" high x 5" deep at the base, excluding shoulder strap.
