My pal Nikki snatched this out fit from her grandmother's closet while they were cleaning the home out after her death. Nikki loved this outfit of her grandmother the most and wanted to cherish it.
Voile! Here it is all. 100% polyester (ew) and it even smelled a bit like grandma.
Nikki decided she didn't want the outfit, but wanted something out of the outfit, so I volunteered to turn it in to a bag or a purse or pillows or something. Nikki voted for a purse. I used the skirt of the outer shell and the blouse for the liner.
I hate sewing stretchy fabric. My serger is sick (my preference for sewing stretchy) and my machine wasn't digging the thick interfacing I was using to stiffen the bag up. Oh well. It turned out just fine.
I added a fabric yoyo with some of the buttons from the blouse as an embellishment.
Anyway, I sprayed it with some of my Victoria Secret "Pink" parfume and returned it to her. Nikki was pleased.
