WHAT IT IS: Savvy Retro Inspired Medium Sized Gold on Gold Zebra Brocade Clutch Bag with Bow Feature and Covered Button Accents; Magnetic Snap Closure
THE BACK STORY: This bag was created from an upcycled 1980s cocktail jacket. Zebra!! I washed the fabric by hand and took great care to preserve as much of the original tailoring as was possible. I like to try and put a lot of details into the bags. I loved the buttons that were original to the jacket. They have been added as an accent feature.
THE PARTICULARS: Bag is roughly 10.5 inches long and about 6 inches high. Roughly 1 inch deep.
The pattern was drafted by Emma Brennan for her label called “Charlie’s Aunt”. Once I saw her patterns, I knew that they would be perfect vehicles for my upcycling obsession. I love old suiting. These patterns are the perfect mode of conveyance.
This bag’s particular back story will be included on a card within so that the person for whom you are gift giving (Even if it is for yourself) will be able to enjoy this waistcoat’s journey.
