The Dottie Vintage Bag is a retro-inspired handbag (or shoulder bag depending on the handle length you choose) that is great the way it is, or easily modifiable for the advanced sewer. This pattern is a great way to practice making your own piping. The lining includes a small zippered pocket, and a large main compartment. There are tips included to make this into an insulated lunch bag or vanity bag for your cosmetics. So many possibilities with Dottie!

I'm a graphic designer by trade and fell in love with sewing many years ago. I think it was a natural path for me to mesh the two and start drafting my own patterns. There's nothing I like sewing together more than bags! www.swoonpatterns.com
