I love Lucy!

I absolutely love the “LUCY” pattern by Children’s Corner. Here is the latest variation of Lucy completed for Miss Baby:

I thought this turned out to be a really fun jumper:

These are the Lucy’s I made last year for Miss Baby :

1. Christmas Jumper with smocked insert:

2. Fall Jumper. Actually, Miss Baby has worn the jumper by itself this summer. It made a cute summer play outfit.

Now, you can surely see that I do love Lucy! :) I like to sew for Miss Baby (even though garment construction does not come naturally for me) because I like to “cover” my little one with love as much as possible. That’s why, I am determined to still make a few things for her even though I am up to my eyeballs in quilt deadlines.

Completed: Lucy Jumper

I am a quilter who pretends that I am also a seamstress. For some unknown and yet to be determined reason, reading sewing pattern instructions turns my brain into a mess of tangled knots. So, it often happens that after hours of deliberating over the instructions contained in the sewing patterns, I just give up and walk away from my intended sewing projects. But I did have a “proud of myself” moment last night! I was able to complete a “Lucy” jumper….

ALL BY MYSELF (with a few tips from Annelle)!

The Lucy pattern is a Children’s Corner pattern. The instructions were clear, and they even have online help!

I hadn’t planned on making this more complicated than it was intended. So I just added a monogram for a personalized look:

With a Peter Pan collar blouse, a pair of tights and shoes — we are ready to hit the road, don’t you think?

The fabric I used is leftover fabric I had from making my Apple Basket quilt (from An Apple A Day by Benartex):
