Vintage pattern series: Favorite vintage patterns from my collection

I'm going to start a vintage pattern series...vintage patterns from my very own collection that I can't for some reason or another let go of. In all honesty, I'm a vintage pattern hoarder and I know I need to let go of some of the patterns, but I just can't. If any of my readers ever see a pattern I post and you absolutely love it, just contact me and I may be willing to sell it. Within this series, I will try to post two or more patterns a week. I hope you enjoy them!

This particular pattern is from the (early) 1930's (I'm assuming from the garment details however, the pattern's not dated). The pattern is by Du Barry. I love how very elegant this dress is. You have the option to sew with long bishop style sleeves or short sleeves. The pattern features numerous pleats, just below the yoke line.

Looking forward to your "vintage pattern series"! This dress is so pretty....how fun would it be to make up this dress in a very modern print/color combination.
