Burgundy Ballgown Reticule

Patterns Used:
– None.  I created the reticule without patterns, basing the design on my burgundy ball gown.

Fabrics Used:
– Leftover scraps of burgundy and black satins.
– Leftover scraps of the corset’s off-white denim for flatlining of the bottom for extra support.

Other Materials used:
– Black ribbon for the drawstring.


The reticule I made to match the burgundy ball gown -- I did not use any patterns.

The reticule has extra support in the bottom to help keep it from sagging too much.
