Sewing through the Decades: 1950-1959

They took a break on this challenge because summer was just too busy, but now the kids are back in school, there is a hint of fall in the air, and it's time for the 1950's! Yea!


This picture was one of the inspiration and idea links that a Lemon Squeezy Home had posted for the 1950's. I knew immediately it was a sign that I should finally make this dress, which I had bought the fabric for more than a year ago...



I love the 50's style of full, twirly skirts, peter pan collars and attention to details like piping.  


"Mom are you done taking pictures?"


Then my son wanted in on the fun of "dressing old-timey" and came up with this ensemble...

"The Bobby-Soxer and the Square"




These kids just melt my heart!


This dress is also excellent for twirling!


Even for those who are less than graceful...


I am just lucky to have such an adorable model. She makes everything I make look good!
