1917 Foxtrot Bag – Decades of Style #1701
This vintage pattern by Decades of Style is from 1917. We are sure this little hand bag dangled from the wrist of a stylish young lady or two as she duck waddled or foxtrotted across the dance floor. The larger bag will hold a wallet but not much more. The small bag is a lipstick bag. It has a drawstring closure and deep pleats at the sides.
Use a crisp but lightweight fabric. Choose from either a traditional self-fabric casing or use a gorgeous ribbon for an external casing.
This is a fun and easy project. It makes a great gift and is a good pattern for beginners. Includes authentic period embroidery design and detailed embroidery instructions.
