Simplicity 2358, Music Bag
Thank you all for the compliments on the Advance dress! I'm pretty sure that I'll be able to wear it many ways, like some of you suggested, this winter.
Between piano lessons, trumpet lessons and now Jr. High Band, my son needs a new music bag that will hold all of his music. His current bag barely fits his piano music, let alone the music for trumpet or band. We looked at patterns online and chose Simplicity 2358, view D with a few modifications.
He wants the front to be more like view A, with the tabs and buckles. View A is actually too small for his music; after measuring his books we found out we'd need to make either D or E.
We discussed fabric choices and decided to go with a black bull denim, a plaid shirting for lining, plus some leather for accents. I already had the shirting and leather, so all I had to buy was the denim and interfacing. I also had enough webbing in my collection to make the strap.
This shouldn't take too long to make, maybe I'll get it done over the weekend!
Parting Shot: Ocean View. Here is one of the photos I took in Acadia National Park from some cliffs near the trail, right off of the Park Loop Road.
