A vintage collectors dream! This piece is a true piece of fashion history. A rare example of a 1952 design by Claire McCardell for Townley. Previously owned by a Texas socialite whose parents owned a famous San Antonio boutique, allowing her to have close interaction with Claire McCardell herself, so close in fact that Mrs. McCardell designed her wedding gown. This piece is the only one of its kind.  featuring a yellow floral print cotton wiggle style. Sleeves feature a ruffle along side of bust line. Cinches at waist. The gorgeous design elements do not stop there, the back of the dress cuts into a v shape accenting the back. Metal zipper on the side. A fantastic vintage piece of fashion history! 

Bust 40" Waist 30" Hip 44" Sleeve 14" Length 42"
