I got an email today from Airy:
I found your blog while looking up this pattern. I was thinking of bidding for it on eBay, but then I saw in your description that it had some strange pieces. One of my projects is trying to make my own patterns for garments for myself (I've succeeded in a basic bra, but I'm having some problems with the panties pattern). I was wondering if I could get a picture of the pattern pieces for this Du Barry pattern (there's usually pictures of the pieces on the back or on the instructions). This is just for me to get a general idea of the shape of the pattern pieces. (I don't want pictures of your panties or anything like that).
Well, Airy, I'm happy to help. I scanned the back of the pattern and uploaded it to the Vintage Pattern Wiki (which, if the rest of you haven't checked out yet, you don't know what a treat you're missing!) and to hopefully help you a bit further in your quest to make your own lingerie (Bravo!) here's a closeup, and an explanation of what I meant by "funny pattern pieces" in my previous post on DuBarry 5720.

As far as the tap pants in this pattern are concerned, I would definitely buy this pattern again. I hope this helps!
