1940s Hollywood sewing patterns: Betty Grable

A vintage sewing pattern from the 1940s, designed with Betty Grable in mind by Hollywood Patterns. I think I prefer the short sleeved version of this dress best. Thanks to Julie Kirby for scanning this and sending it in to me, if you have any vintage photos or magazines I’d love to see them! The sizing seems to be pretty different too. I’m not so sure about American sizing, but a 32″ bust and 35″ hip seems small even for a UK size 14 (more like a UK size 12). Would a US size 14 be very different now?
