Item description

A Du Barry Perfect Pattern 5287…a Misses’ and Women’s Tailored or House Dress Sewing Pattern in Size 20. This is an unprinted pattern. The pattern is looks uncut; I did not see any pin holes or scissor marks. All the pieces are there; there are two Piece G’s – Skirt Back. The instructions are there. The envelope is in poor condition with tanning, pin holes and tears. The envelope flap is gone; this is an envelope that opens on the bottom. There is no copyright date but following the guide this pattern 1942. WWII with its fabric rationing caused hemlines to rise. Du Barry sewing patterns were manufactured by Simplicity Pattern Company for the Woolworth Company stores. Production began in 1931 and ended around 1947. Between 1933 and 1936, the NRA (National Recovery Act) logo appeared on the envelope front. Because of their manufacture for one store chain and a 16 year production period, Du Barry sewing patterns are more difficult to find. Remember to check the seam allowance! Many of the old patterns do not use the 5/8” that is standard today. Pattern Description “Fronts of blouse are cut in one with the yoke and rolled open with the collar. Side fronts of blouse are gathered below yokes. Skirt is joined to blouse at natural waistline. Fig. 1 skirt is finished with patch pockets and trimmed with purchased novelty trimming. Short sleeves are pleated at lower edge. Fig. II collar and cuffs are trimmed with rows of stitching. Three-quarter sleeves are gathered to cuffs.” Size 20: Bust 38”, Waist 32”, Hip 41” Don't miss out just because the sizing isn't quite right! Resizing a pattern is simple, instructions may be found here: How to resize a pattern! http://patternpatter.blogspot.com/p/vintage-sewing-resources.html http://sensibility.com/blog/tips/how-to-resize-a-pattern/ All patterns are vintage items and sold…AS IS. Although I maintain a smoke-free and a pet-free studio, I have no control over where items have been previously. I attempt to represent my goods as honestly as possible, but sometimes something will get by. If you have any doubts about an item, E-MAIL ME! I want to make sure that you will be pleased with your purchase. I will make a refund as merchandise credit; buyer pays for return shipments. Pattern comes in a zip 2 mil. plastic bag and is shipped in an envelope with a cardboard insert. The zip bag is great for storing the pattern! Please note that I count the pattern pieces unless factory folded, assess the pattern’s condition and press the pattern as necessary. You will never purchase a pattern from me with “It looks like it’s all there” or ‘Pieces need pressing’
