The Brigitte Baguette Bag

Long and narrow, small in size, so it is just perfect for the essentials. The Brigitte Baguette bag has a streamlined silhouette that blends an iconic shape with a clean modern design. Two sizes included: both a micro and a mini, so you can choose the size that is right for you.

The pattern features tons of options to create a bag that is uniquely you: three flap options, two strap connectors options, and 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.

Don’t let the compact size fool you, there is plenty of room to store the essentials. The interior includes a back slip pocket for cash, tickets, or recipes, and 3 internal card slots that negates the need for a wallet.

You can carry it as a clutch over the arm or as a shoulder bag. With jeans and sneakers to give glam to a casual look, or dress it up to pair with a dress for a more formal occasion. Make both sizes for the perfect mommy and me matching bags.
