Here in the frozen north (I'm being dramatic...I live on the coast, we're more of a rainforest, but it's been a chilly winter) we are all getting excited about Daylight Savings Time. This weekend the clocks "spring ahead" and this yearly ritual is an indicator that warmer weather is right around the corner!
In the spirit of longer days and warmer temperatures I thought I'd put a little collection of vintage Fifties patterns together. These are all for sale on Etsy right now, so if you're itching to start working on your very own Spring/Summer Collection here are some patterns to inspire you.
I love, love, love the ruched sleeves and the keyhole tie detail at the neckline. For sale here.
Stripes scream summer to me and this chevron patterned dress is gorgeous! For sale here.
Double breasted dress with a collar? So lovely! For sale here
I'm a huge fan of halter neck tops and I just adore that halter blouse is the focal point in this collection of separates. For sale here.
This pattern is the perfect way to put a little bit of wiggle into your summer! For sale here.
I hope this little group of patterns has got you dreaming of sunny days and warm winds. I'll be the pasty pale, UK-skinned woman scurrying from shady tree to shady tree...summer isn't my best time of year, but I'm still excited about warmer weather!
