Ok, so yesterday I was visiting my friend Serenella. Her house is a vintage treasure trove! I came home with an old beat-up but beautiful straw beach bag vintage 1970s and the full pleated skirt from a beautiful pinky-melon silk shantung dress from the same years, more or less.
So here is the result! I still have to sew the lining, take the fascia and bow in place
.. but tomorrow is another day.
.. as someone in a film once said!
