I also finished of my 1940’s Du Barry jacket, that’s been haunting my sewing corner for a few months now. I know it wasn’t technically Fifties, but it suited the outfit well enough and was all I could manage at 11pm the night before the fair.
I had planned on lining the jacket, but instead I just bound the edges in red poly cotton binding. The whole time I was stitching on the binding I was telling myself that I WILL return to this jacket after the fair and line it properly, like a good girl. Sadly, I don’t see that happening.
I love this Du Barry pattern. The shape of it is so simple, yet structured. I particularly love the three darts on each elbow – why don’t we see this on modern garments? It also features a flaired peplum and three quarter sleeves with two pleats on each shoulder for a little extra oomph.
