August 1931 McCall's Fashions

"Reflecting the fashion of widespread sleeves."


Pattern #6623: One-third beige and two-thirds brown make one of the most successful frocks of the season. Seaming follows rhythmic outlines on bodice and skirt and lily-shaped sleeves are faithful to the design. A touch of drapery takes sides and emphasizes its partiality with a bow.


Pattern #6633: One of the newest ingenuities of Paris is the bodice that lowers its cowl drapery to make way for revers and a notch of vestee. The sleeve flounce is slit to the elbow for provocative glimpses of casually wrinkled gloves. The criss-cross sash is tied in the back.


Published in the August 1931 issue of McCall's magazine.
