Sleeves, Necklines, Collars, and Dress Types

I’ve recently ventured into drafting patterns starting from my basic bodice and skirt sloper. The fit issues are minimal, since the sloper is made skin tight. Design ease is added as you go along. I found these reference pictures useful for ideas on basic sleeves, necklines, collars, and dress types. These are from Vogue Sewing, circa 1982.

  1. The leg of Mutton is spot on, it does come from a fashion era and therefore you may think of it as costume or vintage depending on your angle. The reference is from the 1980s so the shapes are going to reflect that as well.

  2. I’m doing an assignment that involves designing and these terms are going to be very useful. thanks!
