Embellished Silk Bag

I made a bag, using leftover silk fabric from a dress I sewed years ago in Singapore. Coincidentally, I used the patchwork technique too. After 7 years, the dress still fits. You can also imagine how long I cling on to leftover fabric.

In keeping with the beading I did with the dress, I handstitched a necklace purchased specially for this project. I would've love to use the same beads but unfortunately, I don't have them anymore. It's fully lined with satin and has a press stud closure.

This is the dress and the beading in detail:

And this is what it looks like all put together.

Would anyone like to hazard a guess as to what I'm wearing next week?
