looking for a a specific pattern

MaRyd | Posted in Patterns on

First of all, this is my first attempt at this. And English is not my first language. So, I do apologize for any mistakes I am doing!<!—-><!—-> <!—->

I am looking for a specific pattern. It’s the 1951 French Couturier (Patou) Suitdress from Decades of Style. It was shown in Threads Magazine no 123 back in 2006. It is no longer available at Decades of Style.

My question is if anyone has a copy and if so, would be so kind as to send me a picture of how the various pattern pieces look. I am trying to make me a replica…<!—-> <!—->

hoping for the best!

    I have that issue, but it is in my apartment down in the states.  I will be going back there sometime in May, so if you don't have it by then, I'll make a copy of it and post it for you.

    In the meantime, I have called Threads for articles, and they have been more than happy to send me a copy, so you might give them a call and ask them.  It has been several years since I made my request, so they may or may not still do this.  But it is sure is worth a phone call.

    Please let me know either way by May, so I can help if you still need it.  You can contact me by sending a PM (personal message).  Just click my name and then click on the "send email", and it will get to me.  Good luck.

    BTW, your English is just fine, so not to be concerned about it.  ;-)

    Is it possible you might mean shirtdress and not suit dress?

    If you type in Patou at http://www.lanetzliving.net

    there is one Patou pattern, perhaps it is the same pattern you you saw elsewhere.

    Good luck with your search

      Hi Melanie!

      I am sorry I have not written before! I have been on a business trip and I do not have access to my private computer then.

      but no, I am not looking for a shirtdress... it is a vintage dress from 1952 with a peplum... very nice!

      but thank you for answering!
