Wheee! It's finally done and fully functional! ^0^
Now, for the story :
I was browsing a Lolita brand website, Angelic Pretty (Link
) when I saw their bags. OH MY GOD. So so lovely. And so pricey; over 100$ US each. ;0;
So why not make my own inspired by all my favourite bag? I so did.
I drafted my own pattern, took 1 meter of kind of fake/cheap leather-like fabric, 1 meter of lining (see here
), a zipper and some white piping I had laying around, and I was set.
After many, many hours of work, I was done.
Working with that fabric is a bit of a pain, since you can't sew it twice at the same place, or there will be too many holes and it will simply fall apart. There's many little mistakes, it doesn't stand well on it's own, but once you put stuff in it, it's alright. I choose to put a single strap from a side to another, personal preference.
Overall, I'm very happy with the result, and I can't make to do a red or white one next. And this bag cost me only 15$.
What do you think about it?
