Most of you are probably pretty familiar with the Buttercup Bag from Made-by-Rae.  I've had the pattern for a few months, and I even cut out the fabric for this bag...oh, sometime in the spring?  I don't remember why I set it aside, but I did...and yesterday, I remember that it was somewhere in the depths on my fabric stash, so I found it, interfaced it, and threw it together.  I had some issues with the lining, but I think I figured that out. (I did something wrong) 

Thanks for looking!  If you've made this bag before, I'd love to hear your thoughts Smiley I think overall it turned out pretty well...I especially like the crisp look of the pleats.

Your bag looks great.  I am in love with the Buttercup bag.  It is not only cute, but very easy to put together.

Beautiful!!  I'll have to try this pattern  - I love the lines.

what was the problem with the lining? I amazingly only found it yesterday, and I've cut out the fabric but haven't started sewing. Yours is really nice.

As I mentioned, I think I figured out what the problem was (I was the problem).  I cut out the curved pieces for the outside and lining of the bag.  I'm pretty sure that the pattern does NOT call for the curves in the lining.  So, if you don't do that, you should be fine. Smiley Post pictures.  I'd love to see your finished product!

Looks great!  What kind of interface did you use?  I made two of these last week for the first time, and I used heavy interfacing to get crisp pleats, which made it a bit more difficult to wrestle into shape, especially the second one, which was a kind of silky (thus slippery) poly blend.  Your pleats look perfect.  Smiley  This is such a cute design I can imagine it in all kinds of fabrics.  I want to try one with no interfacing, and one with garment weight, to see how they compare.  It's such a satisfying design to sew up, because it's just so sharp and cute when it's done.
