How To Measure

Charming and highly collectible Claire McCardell skirt! Documented in the 1954 Life magazine spread which states "silk shirt ($30)and wide velveteen skirt ($35)" Done in a rich shade of copper in soft velveteen. The suspenders are not original but were added later. These can be easily removed since they are just tacked to the interior. Skirt is a full circle with side pockets. Super high, wide pointed waistline has boning on the sides. Side metal zip. Unlined.
