A stunning shirtwaist dress, the Clara will surprise you with its keyhole sleeve details, in-seam pockets, and fabulously twirly skirt. The Clara features an elastic waist that makes it both comfortable and forgiving in fit. We’ve taken care to walk you through construction details like the shawl collar, placket and pocket construction, and making bias tape to finish the feminine sleeves.
