I'm combining ideas from the Jordy bag and the Chocolate and Cream Prototype from MssyFshy (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=263546.0;all) but I want to make it bigger and I want to add a couple of pleats. Here is what I've come up with so far. The lines aren't exact in size, etc. It's basically just a sketch. Does anyone see any problems with this that I'm missing? I have the sides angled so that I have extra fabric to pull in to make pleats. I'm wanting the back to be basically straight up and down when done. Will this work? I'd appreciate any constructive criticism. Wink

I just realized the print is too small to read. It says: The parts sticking out on the sides are the extra material needed so I can make a couple of pleats. Inside the sketch are just labels of Band, Front/Back, and Bottom.

It looks all right to me.  I would give more width to the angles.  Try a muslin o a proof with tissue paper first.

Ok, you mean make the angle itself bigger so it sticks out more, right? I think I do have some muslin lying around that I could use for a test.
