Spring Wardrobe Planning with Adele Bee Ann Patterns

Michigan still hasn't gotten the memo that it's suppose to be spring (we still have SNOW in our forecast!), but that doesn't mean I'm not thinking about warmer temps.

This month, Susan from Adele Bee Ann Patterns joined the Livin' Vintage sponsors and what a perfect time too!  With many of us starting to look into our spring closets and with Lucky Lucille's Sew for Victory sew along, there are so many reasons to be shopping for vintage patterns right now. 

Here's three I am really loving:  

1950s Simplicity 3384
1940s Vogue 5708

I love a good apron dress and this 50s Simplicity pattern is just adorable!  I really like how full the skirt is compared to my Swirl dresses -- sometimes a girl just needs a big puffy skirt.

Can we just stop for a moment to take in the sleeves and neckline on this 1940s Vogue pattern?  I could see this dress being made up for either day or night wear.

1949 Simplicity 8238

This late 40s Simplicity patterns pretty much sums up what I love about vintage fashion: cute details, ladylike, and matching jackets.  Plus the semi circle skirt and slight peplum on the jacket is a really flatter combination.  And those buttons on the shoulders!!
