Du Barry 5766 - Done! Ta Daa!

I almost had this completed by the deadline (last night), but was just too tired to try to finish.  I hemmed and sewed buttons this morning.  I'll post a pic of me wearing it later this week.

This was a fun project.  I REALLY like the dress, and I think I will really enjoy wearing it this spring and summer.  It fits well (IMO) and feels comfortable.  The fabric is just the right drape.  I have more vintage patterns from this era.  I need to dig them out and start working on them.

I still have a more detailed post on my blog


  1. I love the color and the drape. Great dress.

    Oh that's right. The deadline. I betta get movin'.

  2. Love the colour & the design at the waist.

  3. Very nice. It looks like a flattering style for just about anyone.
