I want to make a version of this coach bag.  I do not have a sote near me that carries hsi bag to examine up close and personal.  It has a kangaroo pouch pocket on the outside of the bag.  It seems to be almost entirely made seperate from the rest of the bag and then attached - but the linings of both the litle pouch and the main bag do not show seams.  Do I make this as a bag unto itself with the front pannel of the main bag as part of the assembly then make the main bag and deal with this finished pouch hanging off of that pannel?
Here are some pics of the coach bag:

having just fought with a lining of a purse yesterday, I would say that the best way to get that pouch on would be to make it as a standalone, and then sew it onto the main purse at the end.  I think it would be a topological nightmare to try to sew in the lining after attaching the pouch.  Remember, they charge alot because they do those fiddly bits for you!
