Has anybody made up any of the McCall’s Archive Collection patterns? Specifically, the blouse (M7053)??

What I cannot for the life of me figure out is how those two ~ two  ~ different sleeve silhouettes can come from what look to be same-shape pattern pieces.

Any guesses?  My thanks to Laura at Lilacs & Lace for mentioning McCall’s latest 1930’s dresses on her blog – they’re stunners.

  1. You may be correct – I’ve now noticed those lines indicating folds in the fabric? A huge thank you for solving my quandary! I shall acquire this, if I can find it, and try it out.
    Do you think the bat-wing, without the sleeve “extension,” might also work? And be better for hot & humid summers, me thinks? del

  2. I haven’t seen any of the actual pieces, but it looks like two different bodices – one straight and one bat-wing with sleeves incorporated in the bodice piece. Then you add a straight long sleeve onto the one. And a puffy sleeve end onto the bat-wing bodice … Maybe? 😄
