Inspired by the ball scene in Pride and Prejudice, this reticule is designed toreflect the delicate, ornate style of Regency eraevening wear. Leafy vine and wavepatterns contrast with blockier designelements reminiscent of the Regency era’sneoclassical architecture and interior designstyles. This elegant accessory is ideal for aball, but it also makes a handy cell-phonebag. This design incorporates some stitchpatterns that were originally recorded in thesewing book The Young Ladies’ Journal Complete Guide to the Work-table (E.Harrison, 1884) and is a great way topractice lace knitting. Make a larger bag byusing heavier woolen yarns and largerneedles to make a tote.

This is an update to my previous review. I finished this evening bag. It is beautiful. I lined it with pale peach silk. Note to other knitters: When sewing the front and back together, put wrong sides together and stitch neatly around the edges. I seamed with right sides together and when I turned it, the seam was lumpy and awful. So....I had to tear and redo. Review by Peggy (Posted on 5/2/2014)
Beautiful pattern
I am presently knitting this evening bag in white silk yarn. I am 3/4 of the way finished. I chose this pattern because I have never worked with silk yarn before and this is a small project that can be finished quickly. I am enjoying watching my progress. This would be a beautiful bag for a bride! Review by Peggy (Posted on 4/25/2014)
