Vintage Rosalie MaCrini dress (Sold)

This dress came from an estate of vintage clothing that included many higher end mid century designers.  Rosalie MaCrini was a designer of formal and cocktail dresses who designed for many celebrities and politicians wives. This 1957 dress is a beautiful example of her work and is in excellent condition with a back metal zipper. The label reads Rosalie MaCrini Barbara Costume Co. The back of the skirt is lined for additional fullness and to add structure. A sensational designer gown! You can see an image of the original ad for this dress here on theCouture Allure Blog.
