My Suzy Q

I've finally finished a Knitted Babe to completion with wardrobe and everything! Her name is Suzy Q and she was really fun to create and design clothes for. I altered the Rudy's shirt pattern to create Suzy Q's teal peacock blue corduroy jacket, then added the tan fur collar and trim to jazz it up. In the second picture Suzy Q is showing the details on the backside of her dress, with vintage buttons, black grosgrain at the waste and black bias tape for the sleeves. The last picture is her little handbag I made from a scrap piece of fabric. It was my favorite part! It was about a 3"x6" rectangle with both sides sewn up, then the bottom corners sewn. It took a good hour to hem the top and get the leather cord through, then I glued green felt covered plastic canvas to the bottom. The flower was perfectly located!

I love her coat, how clever. She looks very chic.
