1950's Challenge

I'm so excited this challenge is back up and running. I was just TOO busy over the summer to add it to the schedule.

I still have a couple of the earlier decades to complete and I WILL do them.

Here's my 1900-1910 dress
Here's my 1910-1920 dress

I also have my 1940's challenge done, but have yet to photograph it. Maybe next week.

But... my favorite so far is my 1950's challenge- which is this week's.



Nothing says 50's to me like aprons and I love Lucy- two of my very favorite things.
Plus, Lucy's other little Lucy outfit is too small. Boo hoo.... :(
She wore it the other day and it was cutting into her little arms.



I used the Nana's RETRO pinafore pattern again and also re-used the red and white polka dot peasant dress to complete the look.

I just added another little apron to the front.



This pinafore is SO easy to make. I cut it out the other night and finished it yesterday morning in less than 2 hours.



Lucy loves it... but not as much as I do. I'm thinking I need an adult version.
Why is it that I can never make a comfortable apron for me?



I love her little bow, too.

I love the 1950's style. I love 'I Love Lucy' and I love this little dress that Christie made for the challenge. Go check it out and join in the fun and do some challenges.

Your little Lucy is ADORABLE! <3 I totally fell in love with her. Lovely apron, and Lucy really seems to know how to model it :)
