San Francisco, C...
Back in February when I held The First Ever Sew Weekly Swap/Meet (perhaps it’s time to put on another one?), I just HAD TO HAVE this DuBarry pattern brought to the swap by Shannon. I love patterns from the late 1930s/early 1940s because the styles are not only really feminine, but are also totally wearable by today’s standards. I put my claws out at the swap and made sure this pattern went home with me. The things I do for sewing.
I pretty much knew that I wanted to use this pattern the moment this challenge went on our calendar. While I was certain about the pattern, I wasn’t quite sure about the fabric I wanted to use. As I wrote in this post, I’m not a big fan of black & white. That meant I didn’t really have much fabric to choose from in my stash. I headed to JoAnn’s and found a cute print in the quilting cotton section. Additionally, I bought some black & white polka dotted fabric for the bolero.
