About

This Claire McCardell vintage dress is from the 1940s and came from one of the finest estates of vintage mid century designer clothing I've ever had the privilege of handling. The dress is made of a red striped cotton and has a double breasted button front bodice and a fabric sash tie at the neck. There are deep side pockets, an attached fabric belt and a side metal zipper. This is a very collectible dress from the legendary designer Claire McCardell. If you aren't familiar with her, you should know that she is credited with creating some of the first sportswear lines for American Women. You can see her pieces at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume collection. This dress is in such incredible condition that it adds to the value and makes it even more collectible. The owner had actually known Claire McCardell and had several of her pieces. Excellent condition!
