Comparisons XI

Déjà Vu

 

Butterick 6646 (published 1993) and Butterick 6208 (published 1988) feature the hi/lo hems that seem to be currently popular again. Only now the hi/lo hems are appearing on blouses and jackets as well as dresses.  Butterick 6208 is difficult to find, especially in the average and larger sizes.  Butterick 6646 offers four versions.  But check out the center version, or View E.  This has a close resemblance to Butterick 6208.  Butterick 6208 appears to be a tad more fitted and the skirt flounce is not as deep it has no straps and the fitted portion seems to be a bit longer than Butterick 6646.

COMPARISONS X:

One Comparison & One Close But No Cigar

 

 

I have directed attention to Vogue 2743 in a past comparison and I’m doing so again because I found another vintage pattern which is very similar.  The collar, the sleeves and the pockets are minimally different.  McCall 8381 is dated 1951, so coming off the literal end of the 1940s, I still contend that both patterns exhibit a forties style.  Vogue 2743 was published in 2003.
