I lightened and enlarged this flat cut taken from Genevieve Sevin-Doering's website and part of a pattern puzzle at Fashion Incubator. I copied the pattern on a a small piece of muslin to work out the construction. A lot of fun. For one thing, the fabric, with exception of the pant side seams, just fell into place. The front, the back and the sleeves are on the bias--nice for a dancer--if this is cut in a woven and assuming the straight of the grain runs parallel to the side of the page. Sevin-D
pattern '1955 Tweed Handbag' from Blue Prairie via Flikr and designer has added .... VERY IMPORTANT make sure this prints out on 8.5 x 11 inch paper or the pieces of the pattern probably will not fit.... and CAUTION to seamstresses: it isn't immediately apparent but the big pattern piece for the outside is in fourths.
