The Dottie Vintage Bag is a retro-inspired handbag (or shoulder bag depending on the handle length you choose) that is great the way it is, or easily modifiable for the advanced sewer. This pattern is a great way to practice making your own piping. The lining includes a small zippered pocket, and a large main compartment. There are tips included to make this into an insulated lunch bag or vanity bag for your cosmetics. So many possibilities with Dottie!

Great little bag. Instructions are well written and easy to follow. I had some isssues with the piping, but that was more user error than the pattern/directions. This is not a beginner pattern. But none the less a GREAT bag.

Such a cute bag! I modified the lining, added small pockets, and padded the exterior pieces to transform this into a super cute carrying case for my essential oils
