I have to admit, I love how this tote turned out!  I was not sure what I was going to do with the uniform. My customer originally asked about a duffel bag. Due to time constraints, we decided to make a tote bag. Given the materials, this was a good decision. But it was also difficult since the shirt is so lightweight and the pants are heavy. 

 I used a fleece interfacing on the shirt. Then, I added the pants and the patch.

I had some NYC canvas fabric that I added to the sides and the undersides of the handles for a bit of color and whimsy.  I think it was a perfect fit!

I kept the belt intact for the “back” side of the tote.
