Her name was Lola

Her name was Lola

Her name was Lola; she was a show girl……….
Did you know that I’m a closet Barry Manilow fan?
Hence I have named my fav Christmas present from my husband, you know, the one who celebrated Boxing Day by breaking his leg, Lola.Supafit dressmaking dummy
This is her wearing my current favourite dress -obviously not one of my own creations! (yet)
I might have worn this dress a few more times if a certain person had not broken his leg.

She is an 8 part adjustable Supafit dress making dummy.


I put her together on Christmas Day, a few hours after our Christmas diner. As I measured myself and adjusted Lola to suit I did have my doubts that she was the right size! Thankfully normal waist size has now resumed to fit this dress which usually (just) fits where it touches.DSC_1004
I’m looking forward to starting up my machine again. It is strange how you lose your bottle having not made anything new for a few weeks.

Love Lucie xx

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  1. Oooh fab! Your photos will look even more professional!! What a brilliant Christmas gift. I’m also lucky enough to have a husband who buys good pressies! And nothing wrong with a bit of Barry. Though my personal preference is for a bit of Dolly 😉

  2. What an amazing gift. I am not at all sure that I agree with your comment about you obviously not having made that dress. You could totally have done that.

  5. Well done that man! Shame about the leg, but if you can’t go out, you have more time to sew!
