OK, green was not necessarily a 1950s color, but after making all the other things in pink and blue, I needed a change. When I went to take the pix, I noticed it was “green and white” outside too, thanks to a snowstorm falling on the just-beginning-to-emerge grass.
The outfit for this week is a blouse/pants combo that looks perfect and vintage on Toni. Girls in the 1950s might have worn this as play clothes or maybe for gardening or some other task, but it wouldn’t have been appropriate for, say, school. On a modern doll like my Della, it seems to hint “vintage” in a really sweet way. This would be an adorable outfit for a young child too!

There are a number of new things on the flickr page, and here are some cute ones from the recent 1950s patterns, just in case you need more inspiration to get you sewing them:
Willa in a “double dots” dress by Nonniebelle07
Great idea by Karen to shorten this for use with leggings
How did I never realize Camille’s boots have little fins? They are too cute and a great match for gammerangel’s sweet seersucker dress!
And this gingham dress by Marge makes me feel like Camille just kicked off her boots to run through the grass to a picnic!
