Once upon a time..... (OK, it happened 2 weeks ago) there was a ball in the school where I teach. I didn't have the perfect clothes for a ball (as I do not often go to balls ...) so I decided to sew myself a coat.
A designer one of course, got the pattern from different places. I am not a big dress maker so it was not easy. At the end (the afternoon of the ball) it turned out that there was something wrong in the magazine's (burda) measuring table as the coat was OK but huge for me.... I became really sad and disappointed beacuse I had to unpack all the wardrobes for clothes...
At the end I found something and I had more 30 minutes (it was too early to start).
Just to make myself happy I sewed a fan bag for myself. The pattern is of the March P&Q magazine which I got as a Christmas present from my B. It is a really very small one (I love huge bags to put half of the flat in them...), but it was OK for the ball. At least it was a nice and good sewing experience for me that day and made me a bit happier.... :D
I used the rest of the fabric of the coat, machine stitched it and added satin ribbons.
