The Pleated Purse, Pattern Testers

It has been a while since I have had a new pattern.  I thought for sure when school started for my kids I would have all the time in the world for a new pattern.  I was wrong.

I actually made this purse a few months ago, but didn't get the pattern finished until now.  I have loved the ruffle purse pattern I made over the summer and wanted another choice!  So here it is.  This purse has 3 pleats on the front with a panel at the top.  I used an alternating fabric to add the piping look in the middle.  Inside the purse there are pockets on both sides for keys, phones and all that small stuff.


I would love to have any one willing to try this pattern out for me. I have had only one person test my patterns, but I am thinking it would be a better idea if I had 2 people test it.  So I will have 2 winners!!!  You get the pattern for free, and it is sent to your email address. I just need the pattern completed within a week of you receiving it, and all the critics you are willing to give. I will end the contest at midnight in one week, on Friday, January 21st.

Shannon,
This is a great looking bag. The pleats give a "tailored" look for any age (even grandmothers). I am not a gathered & ruffled type. I would love to test the pattern for you, if you are still in need. I have never tested patterns before, but am a long time seamstress & could use a change of pace from Grandchildren clothing & Barbie doll clothes. etrussell@neo.rr.com
