What are you most proud of? The pleats.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Clip the excess fabric off the inside of the pleats to decrease bulk around the top.

Great job! Your fabric is beautiful, good choice. And I like that, as you said in your comments, you chose to keep the rest of the bag simple since the fabric has a lot going on. Nice pleats too. Love it! :)

I LOVE YOUR PURSE !!!!!!!!!! It is like a longer formal bag and it is can be used everyday. GREAT idea. I have a piece of fabric ( don't we all ) that would be SUPER for this project. Keep up the BEAUTIFUL WORK. You have an eye for DESIGN. Joy

The shape and trim together make it look like a halter dress. :) I like it! Beautiful fabric.
