Lucky Lucy

I've shown a paucity of paper crafting since my DH gifted me with "Bernie" my beautiful Bernina sewing machine, as now along with my paper stash, resides an equally daunting stash of fabrics, leather, bindings, laces, elastics, needles, threads, buttons, and more....and my darling granddaughter with two American Girl Dolls.

Meet Lucy
(short for Luciana) wearing a period costume fashioned in pink -- my granddaughter's favorite color.

The "jacket" can be removed to offer a more modern looking dress. This was a bit more challenging than sewing for a real person because of the small size -- (though not as small as those Barbie outfits I used to make for 2 darling daughters) -- but a delight in every way to present it to Lucy to wear on Christmas day and to see how much she loves her new dress. Her "mother" aka, my granddaughter was all smiles too! So, I am a Lucky Lucy too!
