Paisley Du Barry
Added Jul 10, 2011
I saw this 1940’s picture/pattern by Du Barry – style #2478B. I just had to have it!!
I tried to source this pattern but came up zilch (was prepared to pay a hefty price also)!
I drafted the bodice and used a skirt from a 70’s pattern, came out quite oK…
The style in the picture is a halterneck, I omitted due to having quite a few halterneck dresses.
This took a lot more time than I generally do to make a dress, normally my patience gets the better of me and I have to finish as soon as a start. I redid and redid my Muslim, finally happy with the fit and as they say, hey presto, another dress to my ever expanding wardrobe.
Had some piping in the stash and thought, why not?
