Beauty in a 7/8th-length Bell Sleeve

The details are similar in these two patterns from the mid-1930s and 1940 - each with  a full sleeved blouse and a bolero that features a 7/8th-length bell sleeve. Yummy fashion!

This lovely ensemble from 1940 features a gorgeous tuxedo blouse that takes advantage of the graceful 7/8th-length bell sleeve to showcase the full sleeves with tucks.

And this ensemble from the mid-1930s has a similar 7/8th-length bell sleeve on the bolero, joined with a full-sleeved blouse that peeks out with charm, showcasing the contrasting fabric.

Marvelous, eye-catching style, don't you think?


  1. I love that first design! The pink blouse is so delightful.

    1. Thanks, Brigid! I simply LOVE the pink blouse, too! Did you notice there is a short-sleeve version? It's the tiny drawing at the bottom. I'm not sure if that works as well, but the longer version is simply enchanting to me. :)
