If you haven't seen this episode of I Love Lucy, you really should watch it! It's the funniest episode ever and what I decided to base my outfit on this week.
Instead of making a traditional 50's shirtwaist dress, I decided to use up some delightful brushed cotton baby houndstooth fabric that I won in a giveaway many moons ago! I revisited DuBarry 5327 which was my very first blouse I ever made AND I made another version of this blouse as my very first Sew Weekly Challenge (my Coco Chanel inspired blouse).
The blouse features a cute pleated sleeve, two buttons, tucks at the waist (which means it's great with high waisted trousers and other 40's styles) and gathers at the yoke front and back.
Veronica's version of the I Love Lucy dress), I opted for a darker navy blue to match my 1940 skirt (which I'm wearing here) and my matching 1941 high waisted trousers, all of these are from the same piece of lightweight wool that I found in a charity shop (YAY!)
I'm thinking of making matching sleeve cuffs in the navy wool. I wasn't too sure about it at first (I don't want it to look like a bowling shirt. lol.) I also don't want to do the traditional 50's flared cuffs because I'll most likely be wearing this with some sort of cardigan. What do you think?
Also, I think I was channeling Lucy in more ways than one this week--do you notice my big oops with the blouse? I think I sewed the sleeves on backwards! hahahhahahaha.
As Lucy would say:
Do you pop out at parties? Are you unpoopular? Drink a BIG bottle of vigeameatavegin....this stuff....tastes just like candy!
I did have loads of fun taking these photos! David made the label for the bottle and all the signs and tried to direct me in making silly faces (lol).
I also had fun doing my hair up in a vaguely 50's style (it's a bit too long for some of the 50's looks). I really like how it turned out! I curled up some of my hair to look like fringe/bangs and held it in place with bobby pins.
I love Lucy, don't you? What a gal!
