Orton Bag made in Aime Comme Marie Flaming'Oh Linen fabric
This bag! Oversized and over awesome! This is a birthday present for my sister-in-law (a little late) but hopefully the fact that I've made this for her will make up for that! I've made a few Merchant and Mills sewing patterns, they're always so simple and elegant. This is the first time I've tried this free sewing pattern available from their website, you can download the pdf tutorial here, it's quite easy to put together. I think this sewing pattern is ideal for linen adding to the drape and feel and I used the beautiful Flaming'Oh linen fabric from our collection. The fabric with a beautiful pink feather print on a slight grey khaki is amazing to sew! The best thing about this fabric is the linen/viscose mix, you get the linen feel without the creasing, to feel it you would think it was 100% linen. Honestly I can't rate this fabric enough, it's gorgeous but then all Aime Comme Marie fabrics are stunning! Really, really pleased with this bag that shows off this wonderful design.
