Vintage Silk Velvet bag.

I had fun with making this little number, it may not look much from this photo but ......
This bag is made from a 1920's silk velvet panel from a dress I have had tucked away for many years. The silk was used from an inverted pleat called a godet , it is inserted in the skirt like a pleat, of which I have 2 more! The velvet is rouched with a bias cut floral strip inset towards the top. I have lined the bag with cerise pink silk, which really does catch your eye.
I love reusing vintage fabrics, this was a real find. I'm always interested if anyone has fabrics hanging around, I could bring them back to life!
