This is a long and skinny going out bag. It has a 12 inch frame and flares slightly to 13.5 inches at the bottom. It is 6 inches tall and 3.5 inches wide. It is made from a variety of textural wool coats from the 60's. The lining is a sweet fine cotton. I say forever bag because if this is used as a going out bag, it should last a lifetime. As a daily bag, it will still make it many years.
