Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Rare and beautiful Claire McCardell day dress. Mrs. McCardell, the mother of "American look" with her casual design seemed to created this dress as a perfect example of her "look". The brown dress has a perfect fit with its side zipper, darted bodice, and boat-neck front. It is perfectly functional with its below the knee circle skirt, bow placement for cleavage coverage and covered shoulders just enough to be appropriate yet free for total movement of the arms. Finally, this piece was perfectly stored. A true piece of perfection!

Modern size 0/2

Hem can be lengthened 2 inches

*All MRS Couture garments have been professionally cleaned and thoroughly checked before shipping, so that they are ready to wear upon arrival.
