~ Additional Details about pictures:   (One of my very regular customers Jessica, in France, kindly submitted these super pictures of her delightful finished garment of this dress made from this wonderful Du Barry pattern. It is made from a cotton blended fabric. Jessica made it over a 2 month period, taking her time to complete.  She had to do all the finishes, including belt, cover buttons, sew the hem by hand, and also did quite a bit of embroidery by hand. Jessica is very pleased with the outcome and happy that she took her time. She says “The pattern was just PERFECT. A real pleasure, and extremely well explained”. I think the fabric colour is very authentic looking of that period and she has kept to the detail of the pattern. A lovely example of a reproduced garment made from an original 1939 vintage sewing pattern. WELL DONE JESSICA!
