Fabric Envelopes

The previous post discussed the albums I covered. I decided to make something to keep them in. As an alternative to the bag made for mine I decided to make fabric envelopes as an alternative.

These were made from the outside of the dress and the envelope lining uses some of the dress lining. I made a few small changes by making the inside edge straight and replacing the buttons with a functional press stud from the strap on the dress and a decorative button from the back of the dress.
