Welcome Spring !

Yipee its here again...Spring ! This is my favorite time of year. The flowers are blooming and I can smell the scents. I can hear the birds singing again and just love to feel the warmth again. Away goes the flannel bed sheets and put away the jumpers. Something special is in the air.

Butterick 9372.

Cross back button affix, full skirted 1950's dress.
Feeling Spring in this one. Can be worn with a small jacket (Bolero style) to keep the fresh air chill off the shoulders.

This is a Vogue Reproduction of a 1957 design.
Similar in its large skirt but top is more classical and could be for evening or cocktail affairs.
I can hear the rustling fold in this skirt. Crisp cotton blends or for a more seductive dress, satin or taffita.

This Vogue pattern book says it all..."Spring Starts Here!"
For 60 cents you could have had the whole book to view.
I do like the three-quarter sleeve dresses and coat dresses. They are perfect for the warm/ can be cool spring weather.

Simplicity 1970 Pattern Book.
Check out the Groovy scarf and modern independent chick haircut !
Oh that daisy pattern is a classic.
