I am beyond smitten with this fantastic soda shop illustration featuring a selection of spring fashions from 1949. #soda #shop #teenagers #spring #vintage #1940s #fashion #clothing #dress Dress Patterns, Model, Clothes Design, Fashion Design, Styl, Pattern Fashion, Giyim, Ilustrasi, Moda

The gray days of winter have me looking forward to spring and lighter/brighter clothing. I scanned these from a 1949 insert of the pattern department of the Philadelphia Inquirer. The green ensemble with matching beret in the first picture has my name all over it. I love the color combination. While the 30s is my absolute favorite era, there are so many things I love about the designs of this time period too. So pretty!
