Finally, a finished item! Yes, it's been slow going at Chez Arrow...perhaps it's the shortening days of fall...but I did manage to finish an Uptown Bag, which I decided to make despite the hugeness of the Downtown Purse.
Orange floral for fall
Despite its large size, I still love the shape of this bag...but I am not happy with the fusible interfacing...it did not seem to fuse evenly and there is a rumpled look that is not attractive at all! Next time I definitely will opt for heavyweight sew-in interfacing.
A peek at the lining
Of the Amy Butler patterns that I've tried, this was the most challenging...stitching around the top of the bag after the handles were attached was very awkward! Hence a slightly lumpy unevenness along the top, which I think distracts from the shape...but perhaps with a bit of wear I won't notice it as much. I may try making this bag again...after all, the holidays are lurking...just a couple months away!
