My Concorde Dylan just arrived, and I absolutely love it. The base piece is crinkled though and doesn't lay flat. I have to give the bag to DH to hold till Valentines Day, so I have plenty of time to try and straighten out the base before I use the bag. Any suggestions on how to get it to flatten out? I'm thinking of just putting it between some heavy books, what about ironing it? I like the idea of using it to give the bottom of the purse some structure. The bag itself is perfect, so it's not such a big deal, but I would like to fix the base and use it.
My Dylan tote had been stored in the closet for several months and when I took it out the base was bent (other purses on top of it). I just used my hands to bend it back into shape. It was still a little cockeyed, but after using it for a day or two you couldn't notice.
I'm interested to see what others suggest. The heavy books might work but it might straighten the base out too much. I believe that the base is suppose to be curved.
I'm glad you love it Cocolo! My base was bent too and didn't offer as much structure as I was hoping for. So, I gently opened the seam on one end of the zebra print base cover and slipped in a thin flexible piece of plastic from an office supply store. I just folded the cover over the edge the way you would a pillow case... but it might be nicer to hand hem it.
