Sew, Sometimes I Craft Without (#6) . . .

paper -- and oh my, did I ever LOVE making this ADORABLE little Penny Lane Jacket by Liberty Jane Clothing -- it is my FAV, at least at the moment, but I'm sure it will be a top FAV for years to come!

I purchased Linen fabric for this little beauty and I'm sooo glad I did, as it is just sooo sweet!!! I used what I believe to be a tiny piece of vintage fabric, probably from my Mother's stash from many years ago and just love that it went so well with the linen, IMHO!  Ohhh, what I would make IF I only had more of this sweet little flowery print -- sigh!
I've also used some possibly vintage buttons, but who remembers where all those buttons come from?! Molly is modeling for us today, wearing her Peplum Top and Skinny Jeans (also from LJC), but this top is not quite ready for 'prime time' yet. I absolutely LOVE that sweet green fabric that I found at my local Wal-Mart of all places and I'm ever so tempted to make myself a top from it -- that's how much I like it!
The first Peplum top I made is a bit too snug on my original/plumper American Girl dolls. The added 10% is a bit too much though, so more tweaking will happen as I just adore this top and will get it's fit perfected soon. When I do, you know I'll post it!  ;~)
