Golden Garbs- Summer Suits!

The Summer Suit

Heaven knows I love the chic-polished look of a vintage tailored suit! Just because it's summertime, doesn't mean that I'm going to put the thought of wearing one, on the shelf for a few months! Summer suits made of lightweight linen or cotton fabrics, with a short sleeve, are a ladies alternative choice to wearing a suit in the summertime!

Here I am in one of my summer suits, in a light green (almost gray) linen fabric, with navy blue buttons!

(1940's navy mesh style wedges)

A few more sewing patterns of summer suit inspiration!

Any one of these suit ensembles would be lovely paired with a straw summer hat...

  1. I am looking for 1940's dress's for a USO 40's b-day party my twin and I are having for our 40th. We have been searching for months for that right dress. I love this pattern for a dress. I am not sure which is the best route to go trying to find one or make one....any ideas?

  8. All of your patterns are beautiful. As we can observe, the fashion style during those 1940's are back this modern days and more ostentatious.
