But my dear ones, the whole point of this very pattern is that there IS no pattern. That's why it's called a cheat-sew clutch; she cut off a corner piece of her coat or scarf or something, sewed down one side, and said voila. This site only reroutes into people's individual sewing blogs, and each blogger has her own method and style. It's interesting, and there's something for almost everyone. Besides, what one woman can invent, another can discover, right? I mean, if the pictures are clear, that's all that's needed for a clever brain. Cheers, y'all!

Now I see what you mean. There really isn't any pattern for this particular item. That can be disappointing to folks who are interested in making it. I hate being sent to blogs that really don't show you anything.

this is the worst web site i have ever come across. I logged in and saved pattern and went into the saved patterns and it doesn't give me the pattern. It blows me all around I have better web site that are computer friendly and give me the pattern. You must think people are stupid but I think you are

I guess I am a dummy! I saw the visuals but there was no actual directions as length, width or just simple directions. Cute idea but I need more information to complete it.

Looks like to me you could use the zipper that zips up the skirt when you put it on as the top. Turn it and sew up the sides. I hope this makes sense. This way all you are doing is sewing and now having to add the zipper in-it's already there. :)
