        • in my next life, I want to be the woman in these pictures – is this YOU tissuepaper?
        • this is really a fabulous pattern and I can’t wait to make it. I have some wonderful yardage of dupioni silk in turquoise and purple. I think I’ll have to make a muslin first, and see if I can make the bag entirely reversible.  I wonder how long I need to make the handle if I want it to go over my shoulder and across my chest?
