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.
I am delighted to combine postage and insurance costs for you — often sending additional items for FREE or just a few cents more. It is worth taking a look at my other items before you check out. If purchasing more than one item, please ask me for an adjusted invoice or you will pay a lot more in postage than you need to.
Generally sent the same day your payment arrives — wrapped in plastic wrap to protect from the elements, then placed inside a manila envelope with a piece of cardboard to keep it flat while traveling First Class to you. I can add another piece of cardboard or send in a bubble mailer for about 25 cents more in First Class postage. I can also send this via Priority or Express Mail if you need it quickly. Delivery Confirmation is included in the postage cost for US buyers. Ask about packaging or shipping options not yet listed.
If you’d like more information or photos, please feel free to contact me. If it’s the price you don’t like, make a reasonable offer!

>> I store my patterns in a clear zip-top bag to help protect them from additional tearing during handling and storage. 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.
