Vintage frame purse

I haven't been going out to tag sales this year as much as previous years, I think part of the reason may be that the first ones I went to this spring had such amazing stuff that anything else would be a letdown. The first one I went to was run by an art history teacher, and she had some amazing vintage items. I figured I'd post this purse first, since I wore it with the dress below for July 4th.

The best shot I could get of the whole thing, it's fairly long. My best guess is it that was handmade out of an older article of clothing - it looks handstiched and there's some uneven beading on the back where it seems like pre-beaded fabric sections were used. It has two inner pockets, one in the short section and one in the long section. Also, the outside has another opening to a pocket you don't have to open the frame for, which was pretty convenient.
