Stitch Her Style - Glorious 39

It has taken me a while to find these but I thought it was about time I shared with you the modern patterns which I think would re-create some of the fabulous Glorious 39's outfits.
For the original Film Fashion post click here!
Butterick McCall B5182
I love this dress and the Butterick version is so similar I actually squealed when I saw it.
Butterick Retro 5152: 1948 Dressing Gown
Not quite the same but lovely none the less
Burda Style V-neck dress $5.40 (Download)

Simplicity S3688: Retro 1940s Pattern 

Simplicity S4044 Misses & Plus Size 1940s Retro Suit 

Both of the above Simplicity Retro patterns are definitely worth having in your collection if you're a vintage fan, as they both offer a good range of separates, and finding original 40s patterns of separates can be difficult and expensive especially trouser patterns.

Craft Stylish: Beret Pattern by Nicole Smith FREE
Love this Beret tutorial, you can choose to make it plain or add the cutwork pattern, which I think is rather nice too.
Burda Style : Sailors Neck Dress $5.40
Simplicity - 2501 Blouse pattern 

I think that it would be really easy to turn this blouse into a bolero. The sleeves are almost spot on, the only changes would be to shape the neckline by removing the button band and neck tie.
Simplicity - 2501 Blouse pattern 
Same Pattern as the bolero above, this time using version B with the long floaty sleeves.
