Just getting a chuckle thinking of one of the most memorable moments on TV, Lucy, Ethel, and those chocolates! Very clever and fun re-creation of the original!

Brilliant! You could be the president of the Lucy Reenactment Society. Even your facial expressions are Lucy's and Ethel's. Oh, and the shirts are great. Have fun!

Thank you everyone. I did enter it in the contest. As for the chef's hats, I didn't use a pattern. I did look up some tutorials online but ended up pretty much making it up on my own. The bands are interfaced and the tops are just large circles gathered onto the bands. I cut a small slit into the circle and finished the edges. The band overlaps in the back and is closed with velcro. This made them easier to fit and allowed us to tuck our hair up inside them.

Wow, from the pattern envelope to your adorable 1950's' manufacturing' uniforms...too cute! Your chef hats look great too, did you have a pattern or just 'wing-it'? Enter the contest! I think you have 4 points worth of sewing!
