Special Occasion Clutch in Taupe Silk with Cream Batik Lining
Do you have a special occasion in your future? A prom, perhaps? A wedding? Or do just dig dressing up? This is why I have added clutches to my studio! I first began making them when I was sewing prom dresses and bridesmaid dresses for my daughters. They needed somewhere to keep those little items one never leaves home without, and a matching clutch or handbag fits it to a tee.
This is a classic style clutch evening bag in a wonderful shade of taupe or light brown in some fantastic Dupioni silk fabric.
Dupioni silk is woven of a dual thread, resulting in a Shantung style weave with horizontal lines and slubs from that double thread. The fabric has a lovely sheen to it, as well as a crispness.
I have lined this particular clutch in a cream and beige batik fabric which blends nicely with the silk. I've made a pocket divider inside in the process of lining the bag.
The bag closes with a sewn-on snap with a decorative button on the front of the bag. I always sew my snaps on. It's a quality "thing" for me, as I've had too many snaps on off-the-rack clothing fall out!
This clutch measures approximately 8.5" wide by 7" high when folded.
If this isn't quite the right color that you're looking for, please contact me using the link over on the side of the screen. I would be happy to custom make a bag for you!
