Poor Lola...I called her yesterday at noon and her sweet hubby told me he sent her to bed...for the day. She's exhausted...completely exhausted, that's what happens when market is less than a week away, you have six kids and loads of sewing to get done. You see, Lola gets the pre-market jitters something fierce. Farrahdoo and I really don't understand why because she is amazing and everything she does is awesome and nearly perfect. Lola is wonderful and I for one am very grateful that she's my friend and business partner. Life without Lola would be very dull, very dull indeed. Someday I will get a great pic of her in a really snazzy hat you should all see :o)
So, this is one of three reasons Lola is tired. I am not really sure how she'll feel about me posting pics of this newest addition to the Izzy & Ivy lineup. For some reason she wanted to wait until after market for the BIG reveal...I don't know why. What I think she needs is for all of you to tell her just how fantastic this little creation is. So, will you leave her a comment? She needs the kudos, because for some strange reason the girl doesn't get her own greatness!
Claire Marie...a topcoat. ADORABLE!!! Love that sash in the back and it has an option for a hood in the pattern. This little ditty has been floating around in Lola's head since the beginning and it was worth the wait. I am making one right now out of laminated cotton for Bella Bug. The greatest part about the jacket is that it is so easy! Seriously, a beginner could make this. She really did a great job, as always.
I won't post the other two patterns today. We'll save those for this next week. Until then, give our Lola a little love and let her know that once again she outdid herself.
