Prominent Designer A547; ca. 1953; Carolyn Schnurer - Misses' Dress

The newsmaking dress on the cover of a leading fashion magazine is from the collection of American designer Carolyn Schnurer who' always in the forefront of fashion. With our exclusive, couture pattern, you can copy this Original exactly. A pouff of taffeta explodes at the neckline, emphasizing the fitted middle and the narrow line of the skirt. The collar is designed most ingeniously so you can wear it several different ways. And those dress pockets that mark the hip-line. I've made my Original in several fabrics," says Mrs. Schnurer. "Paisley wool for important daytime occasions, wool tweed for a nine to five day and black velveteen for "after - five". Whichever fabric you choose, you can be sure you'll be wearing one of the season's smartest dresses (as stated in Poughkeepsie Journal, November 8, 1953)
