Item details

Hollywood Pattern 1119
Dorothy Lovett of RKO-Radio
ca. 1943*

Size 18 Bust 36 Hip 39**

This unprinted pattern is for a two-piece dress with a short or bracelet-sleeved jacket and skirt.

It features actress, DorothyLovett, a radio and film actress who worked primarily during the 1940s. A Wikipedia entry about her is here:

This pattern was purchased as part of a large lot at auction from the estate of a woman in Louisville, Kentucky. All of the patterns in her collection appear to be factory folded and unused. I did not open the pattern to count it because I didn't want to mess up the factory fold. I am confident that it is complete because of the consistency in her collection. She stored the unused patterns together by purchase date, even writing down on notepaper the exact date of purchase. This pattern's purchase date is recorded as Tuesday, May 25, 1943. I do not know why she purchased so many patterns and stored them so meticulously, never to be used.

Envelope and pattern are in excellent condition and the instructions are included.

I have tried to capture the envelope condition in the photos, but I can always take more if requested.

Please convo me if you have any questions about the item or its condition.


Pattern will be shipped in a protective sleeve with a backing board.
