for a friend

for a friend (front/side)
i made this bag recently, for my friend kat's aunt. the bag was designed around the belt which is very special to her aunt. it was the first thing she ever purchased with her own money, she saved up and purchased it from a fancy department store. kat and i picked out mix of vintage fabrics, including charcoal and cream damask for the back, cocoa lace for the side panels, and deep blue textured upholstery fabric for the front. the flap is chocolate brown suede, repurposed from a vintage skirt. i used the remnant from the belt on the adjustable canvas strap, and freehand stitched madebyhank in bright white.
