Liberty Pleated Purse – Free Pattern and Sewing Tutorial

Liberty Pleated Purse Pattern and Sewing Tutorial

By: Leila for Marie Claire

This handbag is not for beginners as it is just a little more complex.  The sewing tutorial is written in French, however, my browser automatically translated it into English and 95% of the tutorial was easily understood.  I don’t usually showcase patterns or tutorials written in other languages, but I made an exception as everything was so well put together.  I found the format in which the tutorial was written, extremely helpful.  Each step had it’s relevant pattern pieces virtually paper clipped to the right-hand side to download.  If you are an intermediate sewer, you will have a lovely new handbag.  To see whether or not you have the skills to make this bag, check out the free sewing tutorial after the jump!
