1930s Claire McCardell Brown Boatneck Dress

Claire McCardell / Claire McCardell Clothes by Townley


Rare and beautiful Claire McCardell day dress. Mrs. McCardell, designed this dress as a perfect example of the casual "American look" design movement she spearheaded in the early-mid 20th century. The brown dress has a body-skimming fit with its side zipper, darted bodice, and boat-neck front. The dress is both beautiful and functional, with its below - the - knee circle skirt, bow placement for cleavage coverage and covered shoulders. A true piece of perfection!

Modern size 0/2 Hem can be lengthened 2 inches
