So anyways, as a result I would like to clear the old designs out to make room for the lovely new ones. I'm having a sale, all previous versions of the 8" clutch are now 20% off. Please visit my shop and check it out!
Here are a few pictures of the new design:
I'd be happy to hear what any of you think!

At first I thought I would treat the kimono like it was just a piece of fabric. But then I had the idea of using pieces of it that defined it as a garment. I started with the left-hand bottom corner and used this with the trim still attached, as a front pocket on the clutch. For the back of the clutch I used the back of the kimono complete with back darts and centered them on the backside of the clutch. I added a brightly colored orange vintage button that I found at a flea market in Brandon and lined the purse with corresponding orange dupioni silk. I had a lot of fun creating this purse and would love to hear what you think!
