Bramble Bag

A Handmade Holiday Party Pairing: Bramble+Myrtle

Holiday Party season is in full swing! In honor of champagne, bacon-wrapped dates, and awkward conversation, we bring you a perfect holiday pattern pairing: The Bramble Bag and the Myrtle Dress.

The Bramble Bag is our very versatile cross-body bag. Sewn in beautiful, rich Burgundy waxed canvas, this bag is dressy enough for the glitziest of parties, but much more useful than a puny clutch (I mean, where are you going to put that ziploc bag full of stolen bacon-wrapped dates?)

The Myrtle Dress is a cowl-necked knit dress from Colette Patterns. It is a fabulous party dress because it has a lovely, flattering silhouette and it is really comfy. I made mine in a lightweight rayon knit from Jo Ann's, but a wide variety of fabrics will work wonderfully. Just remember that it can't be too heavy, since the bodice is two layers in the front, but it can't be too sheer because it has to cover the rest of your body. I would also recommend something with nice drape so that the cowl will fall nicely. Personally, I omitted the pockets on the dress because they were too droopy with my rayon fabric.
