I found a gorgeous free pattern called Passion for Purple by Hobby Lobby at Passion for Purple bag pattern. Even though it calls for a vibrant colour I wanted to make it in silver and used my all time favourite cotton yarn Patons Regal 4 ply.
The pattern is quite easy to follow and builds fairly quickly. I do need to add a lining before I can use it. I omitted the last set of rows which double up the frilly collar as I thought it was full enough.
