Mission McCall Mondays: Some Missing Images

Thank you for all the lovely comments on the new flat! I love how Kat described it as a 'ray of snuggly sunshine'! I love that!!

This week I'm happy to fill in a few of the missing images from the Mission McCall Mondays.  The first three images are from C├ęcile (aka Petite Main at the wiki) and are from 1936.  First up is 9001 (which I've been dying to know what it is....isn't it lovely?):

 I really love the the back on this dress! So beautiful!

Next up is 9006 for the low-neck dinner gown:
This look definitely epitomizes mid 1930's gowns for me!

9007 is also absolutely stunning:

I also found several images from the December 1936 McCall Style News on Trevira's flickr photostream including McCall 9049:
This may be my new favourite gown pattern!

YAY! Glad to have found a few more images!  Happy Monday everyone!

Missing images so far: 502, 503, 505, 507, 508, 510, 9000,9002, 9003, 9008, 9009, 9011, 9012, 9013, 9014, 9017, 9030, 9040, 9041, 9048, 9050, 9062 and 9073. 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.


  1. Wow... I dont think I've ever seen 1930s patterns. I might be inclined to agree with you about the last one. Its absolutely gorgeous and would translate into an amazing designer dress. Have you got plans to make this? x

  2. Love the 9006 low neck dinner dinner gown, it's beautiful. Are these patterns still in existence somewhere?

    I'm so glad you've found a new flat - it looks bright and full of natural light. You must be so relieved and excited too.

  3. All so pretty, The first one would make a lovely night gown with a vintage long robe to go over it!

    The last one I really like as well!

  4. Gorgeous, love the low neck dinner gown, so chic!

  5. The first one is my favourite - I love that low-cut back! I've been complemented on my back on numerous occasions (I know - bizarre!) so I like clothes that allow me to show it off in a stylish way.

  6. Hi Debi, these are very elegant dresses. The last one is just gorgeous. I have just read your post about your new flat - it looks very welcoming.

  7. I'm righ there with you on that last pattern, its devine! I really like the arm hole, how it comes back to meet the seam line. Its really interesting!

  8. I do love that last pattern! What fun to have place to wear a dinner dress like that.

  9. Love that 9007- can picture how beautiful that would be.

  10. I love the last one - I hope you find it and make it up!!

  11. I love the first dress with the low back...just gorgeous! The double breasted one is really chic. A definite winner for me too.

  12. I really love the first one. I'd like to try that one.

  13. waaaaa, I love that gown...double breasted look! too cool!

  14. Oh, they're all beautiful...Though I love the 9007 and the collar on the last pattern. 9006 is classic, I can imagine many of the stars from the 30s in that one, and in fact am pretty sure I've seen Norma Shearer in something quite similar!


I read each and every comment--thank you so much!
