Isn’t this handbag beautiful!?  So simple, and elegant.  A delicious framed purse with feminine gathering kept securely in place by U-Handbag’s Grace Kelly Purse Frame.  Clean, modern design and solid metal “antique bronze” finished handles all add up to a chic purse frame. This vintage-inspired frame completes this shabby chic purse, but the fabric and the shape of this bag is what slays me the most.  Lisa Lam, who designed this bag explains how she was inspired;

The Bag Making Bible: The Complete Guide to Sewing and Customizing Your Own Unique Bags By Lisa Lam“This bag is totally inspired by the purse frame itself.  As soon as I saw the frame I was thinking of film starlets, Grace Kelly, Doris Day, and the lovely women of Mad Men.  This beaut of a handbag more or less designed it’s own sweet self.  I wish all my designs came that easy!)”   Lisa Lam – author of The Bag Making Bible

    Perfectly named bag. I love it. Was wondering how I would find the hardware and then realized you put a link right there below the pattern. Great service!
