This PRINTED PAPER PATTERN pattern contains TWO DIFFERENT versions of our popular 1950’s inspired Casablanca Clutch bag. The pattern is both retro and “on trend” for today combining the currently popular large “over-sized” shape with pleat detail at the front and a sleek curved flap. The clutch bag is shaped with darts and can be made using two or three contrasting fabrics. The TWO variations are as follows. View 1 has a plain flap, ideal for showcasing two large vintage buttons. It also has a stylish box pleat in the centre front. View 2 has a plain front, a flat bow and tab trim on the flap and includes instructions for adding a purchased handle. A template is included for an interior patch pocket.

Casablanca Clutch Bags measure approx 16” (40cm) wide by 9” (23cm) high.

Note: This is a professionally PRINTED PAPER PATTERN published by Pattern Press that has full sized pattern templates, detailed instructions and illustrations demonstrating clearly how to construct the bag. It also has a colour cover with photographs of both styles and a plastic bag to keep the cut pieces in. The pattern will be POSTED to you on receipt of payment.
