This pattern is from 1948 for a handbag with a
front pocket. It’s a simple design with the front
and back the same but with a flap and pocket
added to the front (as image shows). The front
and back are held together by a one piece gusset
that goes all the way round to form the bottom
and sides of the bag. You add handles and a zip
at the top to close.
The pattern is in French and you can easily use one
of the on-line translation sites to help with the instructions.
I have also included a list of French sewing terms to
get you started.
Please note that there are very limited instructions in
French. You will need to be experienced to use this
pattern as there are no step by step instructions.
Approx size is: Width across top of bag is 33cm,
at widest point 38cm and is 28cm high
When printing the pattern from the PDF, you must choose
actual size or 100%. It’s set up to print for both US letter/
legal and A4.
