Cute & Easy, but Check Yardage!
View 2 requires 4 - 41/2 yards of 45" material, not 2 3/4 as listed on the pattern. I was able to work around that by leaving off the bottom ruffle and making the ties narrower and a little shorter. It worked up quickly and the rest of the directions were correct. Please note that you will need bias tape for it.

1930 Ladies "Hooverette" Day Dress
A darling dress straight out of the 1930s! I made this pattern twice out of two different cotton fabrics: a yellow large floral cotton voile with the shawl collar, and a white cotton eyelet with the ruffled collar. Both versions made up very well. The instructions were detailed and easy to follow. The yardage required seems low. I bought 4 yards of each fabric.

Perky and Cheerful
This pattern worked up easily and fit fine. I did the ruffled version which is without sleeves; I suspect I would have to increase the shoulder size if I did the sleeved version. The ruffled version is so darned perky that you can see why dress writers said that house dresses should be cheerful as the home is where the family is. I did the flounce instead of the ruffles below and trimmed the ruffles with rick rack.
