I live in my head too much

So, I'm making a dress from a vintage 50's reproduction pattern for our anniversary cruise - it's going to be slightly nautical in navy with white accents and a red and white striped lining through the whole thing. I have the perfect shoes, and even got some vintage white gloves! Only one problem - I needed a purse!

I ransacked my closet and the closest thing I found is this one:




But, of course, it doesn't match at all!

So, I used some of my scrap fabric left over from the dress and made it into this:








I'm trying to find some anchor buttons or something to add a little flair to the dress, so if I find some, I might put one on the purse too.

When I'm finished with everything and I'm home from the cruise, I'll be sure to post some pictures of the whole outfit! Wink

That is a fantastic bag! I like both the before and the after.  I'm sure you'll get lots of enjoyment out of it and I'm looking forward to seeing the whole outfit.
