Vintage Pattern Drafts

These are vintage shirt patterns drafted circa 1940-1959. Notice the subtle shaping of the pattern pieces.

The sleeve pattern (upper right) is very different from other sleeves. Why is it shaped that way? (sorry for all these questions)

I was going to comment on this too. In an old Palmer Pletsch book I saw a tip if you were going to put a placket in a sleeve. You would cut the sleeve pattern lengthwise and tape the cut off piece to the other side - yielding a shape like this - so that the placket is at the seamline and is easier to sew!
