I just found an interesting WSJ article on apparel construction and fashion copies via the Pattern Review message boards. When you have a few moments, check it out and be sure to watch the video (3 minutes long).
One of the guys in the video talks about a Lanvin dress with leg of mutton sleeves; that reminded me of a really great online resource, vintagesewing.info - this excerpt from the 1942 book, Modern Pattern Design, shows how to draft leg of mutton sleeves.
