The Brigitte Baguette Bag comes in two sizes, both a micro and a mini, so you can choose the size that is right for you. It has a streamlined silhouette that blends an iconic shape with a clean modern design. Long and narrow, small in size, so it is just perfect for the essentials. You can carry the Brigitte Baguette as a clutch over the arm or as a shoulder bag.
The pattern features lots and lots of options so that you can create a bag that is uniquely you. There are:
three flap options
two strap connectors options
two strap options that can be easily switched from a handle that allows you to nestle the Brigitte under your arm as easily as a long, crusty French loaf from which it borrows its name, to a long shoulder strap when dashing between events.
The Brigitte Baguette is a compact bag but there is still plenty of room to store the essentials. The interior includes a back slip pocket for cash, tickets, or recipes, along with three internal card slots that negate the need for a wallet.
Each bag measures as follows:
The Micro Baguette is 5″ high by 9″ wide by 4″ deep.
The Mini Baguette is 5 ½” high by 11″ wide by 5″ deep.
