My regular 'Mission McCall Mondays' post series seems especially appropriate this month! For those of you new to the series, my goal is to update the Vintage Pattern Wiki so that it's complete for all McCall patterns from mid 1936-1940. I am admittedly behind in uploading these to the Wiki but I know I'll get there soon. All of the patterns this week are from 1937. The pattern envelopes were uploaded into the pattern Wiki by VintageMartini.com--a great online pattern seller. The other images (alas just the images not the patterns) are from my own collection.
We start off this week with a pattern already in the Wiki, McCall 9100:
I really love this pattern between the double collar, the neat rows of buttons up the front to the interesting sleeve details, I think it's just perfect!
Next up this week is an image from my own collection for McCall 9101:
9102 is for a classic boxy men's shirt pattern:
I find the button placket/front yoke really interesting on this pattern.
Next up is an adorable two-piece tunic dress, McCall 9103:
Pictured in a beautiful lace overlay with an adorable bow. I don't know about you, but I'm a big fan of tight 1930's sleeves and this one has great sleeves!
The 9104 dress pattern is also already in the Vintage Pattern Wiki:
Onto our first gown this week, McCall 9105:
I've found no image for the 1930's McCall 9106 (though I did find tons for the 1950's McCall's 9106) so it will be added to my missing images list.
I do have an image for McCall 9107:
This dress has an interesting design feature in that it appears as if the middle of the dress can be done in contrasting fabric and topstitched down the sides??
I really like the next dress, McCall 9108:
I think having the lace peak out like this in the back is such a great idea!
The last pattern image this week is McCall 9109 (with a bonus McCall 9060 image on the right):
This one is not my favourite--though the sleeve shape is interesting.
Ok, so which one(s) do you like best? I think my three favourite (in order) are 9108, 9100 and 9105.
Missing images so far: 9011, 9012, 9013, 9017, 9040, 9041, 9050, 9062, 9073, 9082, 9088, 9106 and 9110. If you want to contribute to the Mission McCall--just email me the images or pattern covers and I'll update them in the Vintage Pattern Wiki. myhappysewingplace[at]googlemail[dot]com.
