I've gotten brave....not only am I going to shorten this dress to cocktail length (with my oh-so-novice sewing skills), but I'm going to try to make a matching purse (1st 1 ever!) from the left-over material. I just don't know what style of purse would work well with this dress. I bought the dress for a wedding, so whatever style purse I make, I'd like it to be not too tiny but not cumbersome to carry around all night either.
I'm pretty new here, but have looked at so many of the purses posted & am floored at the talent & creativity ya'll have! It definitely gives me TONS to aspire to! So I'm hoping some of you could offer some ideas on the style/shape/size purse I should do that isn't majorly difficult to make, and maybe point me towards a tutorial or 2.
Here's the dress:
Thanks for any suggestions/inspirations!!
