Item details

Gals, here's the perfect 40s dress pattern. An original vintage Du Barry pattern dated 1940, the envelope reads:
'..misses' adn women's dress. Side fronts are joined to blouse fronts, forming pockets at top which may be buttoned to blouse or trimmed with stitching. Fronts are cut in one with collar. A detachable collar is optional. The 6 piece skirt is joined to blouse at naturea waistline, long dart-fitted sleeves are perforated for short.'
And with only the piece for the optional detachable collar missing, this impeccable wartime pattern is ready to create your favourite 40s dress- again and again!

*this is an unprinted pattern and best suited to an experienced seamstress.*

Size: envelope reads 'Size 14 bust 32.'
bust 32, waist 27, hip 35, as listed on envelope.

Labels: 'Du Barry guaranteed patterns.. 1940.. made in U.S.A... 2565B'

Condition: the pattern is complete except for one piece, for the detachable, optional collar shown on the red view. Otherwise only flaw found is a 1.5" tear in collar facing piece. Envelope is fair to good, with minor wear and age, instructions present. I will be shipping the pattern as I purchased it, with the pieces not stuffed back into the remarkably small envelope, in order to preserve it better, all contained in a stronger plastic sleeve.
