What You Get
DuBarry 2386B which includes the full-size pattern pieces and instructions for making this dress with short sleeves, round collar, princess seams, and side front pockets. Outline the seams and edges if you want to. Use the zoom feature for a closer look. Let me know if you’d like to see the envelope back. This is sized for women who wear vintage Misses’ 20 (38″ bust, 41″ hip). No date found but I would date this to the early 1940s. The envelope is smaller than those used today: 7″ x 4.5″.
>> This is an unprinted pattern. Follow the holes in the tissue and the instructions to know how to construct this dress.
The envelope is in expected condition for age but with fold splits, edge tears, missing bottom/closing flap and some marking in ink as shown. The pattern is missing a few pieces that you can easily recreate: the pocket facing and sleeve cap stiffener. The other issue is that the sleeve was cut for the short sleeve look and the bottom portion was not kept. From clean, smoke-free home.
Generally sent the same day you pay. Unless you request otherwise, I will back this with one piece of box cardboard (to help prevent the Post Office from bending it), wrap it in plastic wrap (to help protect the item from moisture or torn packaging), then send inside a manila envelope when sent via First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation. This is the cheapest postage option that includes both item protection and tracking. See the shipping page to give you an estimate on the cost of a First Class Light package. I am delighted to combine postage and insurance costs if you purchase more than one item. The second item may travel for free or just a few cents more — so it’s worth taking a look at my other items before you complete your order.
If you’d like more information or photos of DuBarry 2386B, please feel free to contact me. If it’s the price you don’t like, make a reasonable offer!
>> I store my patterns in clear zip-top bag. If you want this to ship inside one, I can do that for another 10 cents. Let me know if you want that before you pay.
