Vintage Pattern Love: Sun Suits

 Sun suits must have been the order of the day for comfy summer wear in the 30s, 40s, and 50s, because adorable patterns abound for them.
 They are some of my favorite patterns. Sun suits came in so many styles and were suitable for boys and girls, from infant up to size 6 or so. Occasionally, you'll see them right up to size 10!
 They often came with coordinating jackets, boleros, or dresses. Bonnets and caps were also a common accessory.
This yoked style is especially pretty and also included designs for hand embroidery. The beautiful, sunny days we've been having make me want to stitch up some sun suits!
