I just had to make one of these, and add a "few" modifications..to make it "my own".  I like a flat bottomed bag, and pockets are a necessity!  So.....here it is!

I like flat bottomed bags also, so may I ask how did you make it flat, by just sewing the triangles at the side bottom corners or did you add  something to the bottom? Love the little zipper pouch. Even the fabric is appealing.

Forgot to ask the first time. Is this reversible and/or could it be made reversible? Is there a tut somewhere on this site?

This is such a lovely, romantic purse.  The fabric is gorgeous.

Great job! Very professional looking!

I did not make this bag reversible, as I wanted to add the pocket to the inside.  To make the bottom flat, I just folded the side seam to the bottom seam, and stitched off a triangle.  Easy to do, and it can be adjusted to make the bottom as wide as you would like.

I don't think there is tutorial up yet, maybe someone will do one.  I just don't have the time right now.  I just looked at the other "swing" bags, I had seen, and drew out a pattern on freezer paper.  You kinda have to play with the dimensions.  Be sure to have an eraser handy!
