Here's the description of the pattern from the envelope back:
Every woman needs a frock such as this -while she is doing house-hold tasks, for it --is practical enough and smart-enough looking for a --dash to the grocery.
If you must leave the house while wearing your house dress, you won't feel ashamed of doing so, knowing you're nicely dressed in your smart Simplicity frock. The sleeveless version would be appreciated by women living in warm climates in this era before air conditioning.
The Primer provides both the layout and detailed instructions (albeit, a little on the small side.)
I made up version 2 in a 1930's reproduction cotton I'd gotten on sale. I left off the sleeve cuffs and I've no idea where the tie belt is. I wear this dress a lot, even though I find the v-neck a tad low. The neckline on view 3 would probably suit me better. The actual bust measurement is 46". (Note that the pattern was offered in sizes up to a 50" bust. Utilitarian patterns like house dresses were more likely to be offered in larger sizes.) This dress is very easy to iron.
