How nice, iOS8. I'm getting real sick of you freezing on me and making me lose all the paragraphs I've typed out.

I am debating seasonal wardrobe options.

I have hundreds of vintage Lutterloh pattern PDFs and a bunch of repro vintage from the big four.
I have tons of options to choose from obviously but I'm wondering if I should make one wardrobe for all seasons or if I should have two different wardrobes, one for spring/summer and the other for autumn/Winter.

I prefer not to spend a ton of money; I already use secondhand fabric and sheets that I get from yard sales or thrift shops. I don't care to spend a whole lot on overpriced fabric from all the stores that are over an hour away.

Wondering if I should do short-sleeved dresses and blouses so that I can layer them with jackets and cardigans for the cooler months or would it be wiser to make three-quarter sleeves and longer in a separate wardrobe out of warmer fabric?

I can relate to your dilemma. In winter on really cold days I wear leggings then I have on a strappy summer dress with a long sleeved blouse over the top which then has a sleeveless dress over that. I hope this makes sense. On cold days I replace the strappy dress with a coloured sleeveless top.

I wear the long sleeved blouses all year round as in spring and autumn I roll the sleeves up and leave them open over a coloured sleeveless or strappy top and wear them with pants. As the weather cools off further I change the sleeveless top for a short sleeved top.

In the heat of summer I wear the strappy and summer dresses. I also have an overcoat for winter wear as the westerly winds are bitter.

It does, thanks.
I'm thinking layers are more economical than a separate wardrobe.

or just move somewhere that you can wear the same thing year-round.  Hawaii or Antartica, for instance.

I certainly wouldn't mind Hawaii.
