Townley Frocks (Firm)
8.5 in (width) x 11 in (height)
Sketch by Townley designer Arnold Isaacs (1930-2015), who in the early 1950s had begun using the name "Scaasi". The design is part of a group of sketches that were produced for Townley's "Urban" label during Claire McCardell's final season. The sketch features a checked dress with a fitted waist, knee-length full skirt, and thin shoulder straps. The dress is also shown with a sleeveless jacket with a plunging shawl neckline that produces a drop-waisted effect.
