Mission McCall Mondays 9091 to 9100 and the Sewaholic pattern giveaway winner

It's been awhile since we've had the Mission McCall Mondays. And I am glad they are back!!  I'm nearly done updating the Vintage Pattern Wiki with the previous Mission McCall installments.  This week we conclude with our first 100 patterns! woot, woot!

So I present the McCall pattern images for 9091 to 9100.  I'm still missing quite a few from the first 100 images.  Can you help me out?  As you know, I am trying to update the Vintage Pattern Wiki so that it has all the McCall pattern images from late 1936 to 1940.  I'm slowly working my way through the patterns with a few good source materials and lots of online searching.  But here are the numbers I am missing so far: 502, 503, 505, 507, 508, 510, 9000,9002, 9003, 9008, 9009, 9011, 9012, 9013, 9014, 9017, 9030, 9040, 9041, 9048, 9050, 9062, 9073, 9082, 9086, and 9088. If you want to contribute to the Mission McCall--just email me (myhappysewingplace[at]googlemail[dot]com) the images or pattern covers and I'll update them in the Vintage Pattern Wiki.

So without further's this week's collection.  I'm happy to say that I've got all the images for these ten patterns! YAY!

We start with 9091 which is a lovely dress with both long and short-sleeved versions.  I absolutely adore these billowy sleeves:

Next up is 9092:
I love the back tie. So cute!

The next one 9093 is already in the Vintage Pattern Wiki (and was the one image I was missing).  It's  a very cute little girl's button-down pinafore:

I think 9094 may be my favourite out of this lot:
This image is from the Unsung Sewing Patterns blog and features this amazing divided skirt and blouse pattern.  Perfect for riding a bicycle and all sorts of sports!

9095 is a very cute child's dress:

We head back to ladies' and misses' dresses with 9096:
I really love the way a scarf can be incorporated into this dress--providing lots of potential for creating different garments!  This may compete with 9094 as my favourite!

Up next is another little girl's pinafore pattern:

9098 is already in the Vintage Pattern Wiki and is a lovely dress:
It has the back inverted pleats that I love so much!

9099 is another fabulous dress:
I love how the seam details on the front are also continued on the back!

Last up is 9100 (woohooo 100 patterns so far!) and this dress definitely doesn't disappoint:
Wow...this is so full of detail! I love it!!  First is the double line of buttons down the front.  The straight front skirt but a pleated skirt in back.  And my, oh my, how I love the details on the short sleeves.  Let's take a closer look:
I love it! Ok, this is definitely one of my favourites too!

Which is your favourite this week?

  1. Oh Debi! Patterns from this era make my heart sing! I have 3 favourites this week: 9091, 9096 & 9100!

  2. 9096 is my favourite! I'm so glad I recently found your blog, now I have Mission McCall Mondays to look forward to! x

  3. They are all so gorgeous how do I choose? I keep going back to look at 9091 with those beautiful sleeves so that must be my favourite but I also like 9100.

  4. This is an amazing project Debi. Looking at these Vintage patterns reminds me of the ladies in my family who sewed all their clothing, and how well dressed they always were. While it is hard to choose a favorite, mine is probably 9092. I also remember a similar type of dress popular in the early 1990's. Just proves that everything old is new again, with modifications.

  5. Great that you're having so much fun. I will check at the thrift store for those patterns, as they have a lot of oldies there.
    Since you've been sewing such a short time and are so successful in your fitting, can you say how you approached learning that?? Cheers Fran in Calgary

  6. Thanks Fran! I'm planning a catch-up Q&A post so I will definitely talk about this!!!

  7. I'm in love with 9091. I wantwantwantwant!!!

    Thanks for finding all of these Debi.
