bag in beta testing

I've been playing round with a couple of bag ideas in my head for a while now. This one is based on one I spotted in the blogosphere sometime in the last 18 months although I can't remember where exactly. The pleats were the feature that intrigued me. I liked the idea of getting a flash of exciting fabric half-hidden by a plainer fabric pleated over it.

Mum wants me to make a bag for a friend's 60th birthday which is coming up in August. I've bought some lovely fabrics with this idea in mind, but I wanted to play around with the actual construction before I do the real thing. I think I might make another test bag first though. This one doesn't have quite the crisp look that I have in my head.
