And another thing...

I got this from Etsy for $4.50!  Look at the size!  Not easy to find in vintage patterns.  I like the princess lines and the asymmetry of the side tie.  They call it a housecoat in the longer version and a dress in the shorter.  Naturally, it's fragile and unmarked.  I haven't even unfolded the tissue yet.  I hope all the pieces are there.  Even if they're not, it's simple enough that I can probably wing it...should I ever decide to make it.

that's so cool! What size is it? Why is it different than usual?

It's a bust size 38. Most of the patterns that you find are much smaller because women in general were much smaller back then. It's easy to find patterns from the 40's or 50's that are a 30-34" bust, but not 38 and especially not for $4.50. Most vintage pattern sellers I have seen know people want the larger sizes and so they charge more for those.
