Vervaco-DMC

Hi I have an old pattern by Vervaco( about 15yrs) which I did as a present for my mother. Now after a lengthy gap ,I feel up to doing it for myself as such a lovely picture -a sepia picture of a Roman man and woman faces , the pattern number is -25.492 75.492, but have long since mixed up skeins with my many others
The colours are :
white
creme
light beige
deep beige
light brown
middle brown
deep brown
very deep brown
I have tried twice unsuccessfully to match these but not having much luck. Can anyone help,I dont mind using DMC ,Anchor etc as long as I get it right
Thank you
