Yes, this is the best hooverette dress ever- I adore the button detailing on version 1. And yes it is a very hard to find size for this era- bust 42". I had contemplated keeping this for my daughter as I love it so much but perhaps there is a new owner out there who can do it justice in the immediate term (my daughter isn't two years old yet)! What makes it super special is that there is a sweet but seductive evening length version!
Perfect in gingham, cottons, lawn, rayon, percale and broadcloth to name a few options. And a great excuse to use up all you ric rac. Make it half a dozen times over. I have almost talked myself out of selling it (half joking).
The envelope is in fair to poor vintage condition, images retain crisp colour but a split along one side and along the bottom (see the photo). However, the pattern itself is used but in good condition, no significant tearing- patterns instructions in reasonable used condition.
