The sisters - on the set of "Carmen"?

In August, I posted a bunch of candid photos of two sisters on the sets of a half dozen Hollywood productions. A reader of the blog, Ian Elliot, tracked down their information and identified the pair as Venezia and Italia Frandi. Recently I have acquired 2 keybook stills from 1927's "The Loves of Carmen" and I have identified a woman I believe to be Italia lurking in the background. Although the shirt she is wearing appears different, it looks like she is wearing the same skirt in both pics. Let me know what YOU think:

Definitely the same skirt. I think she's wearing her shawl over her shirt in the 2nd photo. You can see this shawl on her left (our right) shoulder in the 1st photo.

The weird thing is that the pattern of the shirt in the 1st photo almost exactly matches the 3rd photo, but it's clearly not the same shirt.

Fascinating piece of detective work there!
