Vintage Sewing Patterns: Hot and Cold Weather Outfits

At this time of the year, I seem to be focused on sewing either for the current cold weather or planning and dreaming for warm weather sewing!  I thought I'd do a round-up of some vintage patterns from the Vintage Pattern Collective on Etsy to help inspire your cold or hot weather sewing plans.

Cold Weather:
Vintage sewing patterns designed specifically for snow and ice are hard to come by (especially patterns for men's clothing).  Here's a few that I'm loving at the moment:
 1. 1950's ski jacket and pants, purchase as instant download at Mrs Depew Vintage, 2. 1930's Hollywood pattern 1082 for children's snowsuit from Midvale Cottage, 3. 1940's winter vest pattern from Mrs Depew Vintage,  4. Simplicity 2622 vintage skating pattern from 1948 from She'll Make You Flip

I'm kind of really loving this pattern:

 Simplicity 3973: hats, scarves and mittens and matching dog coats 
from Stitching by Numbers Etsy shop

Alas, I don't have a dog and I think our sweet 'Echo' cat would be none too thrilled to be wearing a coat but if she did, I would totally make a matching hat and scarf!

Warm Weather Sewing:
There's so many amazing vintage swimsuit sewing patterns, here's a few of my favourites, I especially like the side buttoned 1940s shorts:
6. Simplicity 3234 1950s swimsuit and coverup pattern from Grey Dog Vintage, 7. Simplicity 1950's men's swim trunks pattern from Patterns from the Past Etsy shop, 8. Plus size (or any size) 1950's swimsuit pattern from Embonpoint Vintage 9. McCall 6036 1940's swimsuit and shorts pattern from the Fragolina Etsy shop

So are you sewing (or dreaming of sewing) for your current climate or planning ahead for the next season?
