Simplicity 4220 - Bag

Pattern Description:

Bag (pattern envelope also for skirt, dress, trousers, tunic top)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?


Were the instructions easy to follow?

Very easy - they are very brief for the bag

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

I only made the bag, I like the slight curve to the top of the bag and the panel details in the construction. I shall made more and add piping etc into the seams.

Make a separate pattern piece for the card to stiffen the base of the bag - they give one pattern piece for fabric and card, and then say "trim seam allowances off the cardboard"..

Fabric Used:

mystery cottons / polycottons/linens from stash

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

I inserted the card to stiffen the bag between the lining and the outer, rather than just lying it in the bottom of the bag.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

Yes I will make the bag again. Am actually planning to make the dress but I have not got around to that yet!


Lovely pattern for the bag alone!
