Vogue Pattern Book, December/January 1938-39

A typically elegant design from Vogue Patterns.

The 1930s was the decade when the convention of floor-length dresses for formal or evening wear was established.  Though this example has a low neckline it also has covered shoulders, indicating it was probably intended for dining or theatre-going rather than dancing.
