Pattern series: Vintage 1930's pattern by Hollywood Pattern Company

The vintage pattern I have chosen to post today is one from the 1930's. It's by Hollywood Pattern Company, pattern number 1180. According to Cemetarian, this particular pattern number would have been manufactured around 1933.
I love, love, love the longer sleeve version of this dress. This pattern is a one-piece, "sew simple" frock, as stated on the pattern. Blouse is gathered slightly below drop-shoulder yoke. Slide fastener or buttons may finish front opening below narrow shawl collar. Four goured skirt joins blouse under belt or girdle. Single patch pocket on skirt is optional. Just below the elbow sleeves are optional. Can be made with printed crepe, eyelet batiste, cotton or linen lace, seersucker, handkerchief linen, pongee, flat crepe, novelty cotton or heavy sheer.

I think I'm going to make this dress and repost once I've completed the dress. As always, my patterns are for sale if the price is right. :)
