Sew a Trendsetting Bag

Our editorial staff can quote dialog and tell you, exactly, what outfits are worn in every scene of The Devil Wears Prada. Our favorite handbag, by far, is the soft leather sack with a cut-out handle. Here, we'll show you how to draft and sew the beauty. Our version is a reptile-textured patent leather, but you can use any type of leather or suede you desire, or even try it in a sturdy fabric such as brocade, denim, or melton.
