DuBarry 5551 An Easy 1940 Skirt

June 22, 2011

Well, not for me!  
I wanted to give the skirt in DuBarry 5551 a try.  There is only one pattern piece for the front and back of the skirt.  Should have been simple.  It wasn’t.  I started the skirt in April and only just finished it.  I had to put it on hold for a couple of months because I had some extreme fitting woes.
Nevertheless, it turned out ok after taking in the side seams 3 inches on each side.

Check out my blog for details on what I had to go through to make this skirt wearable!
