This quarter sleeve dress is stunning!  It's from the Betty Barclay company and was made in the 1950's.  Kind of like Betty Crocker, Betty Barclay wasn't actually the name of a real person, but just a made-up name for this line of ready-to wear dresses.  It's an amazing outfit for fall!  The longer skirt and sleeves paired with the high collar make this dress instantly ready for cooler weather. The full skirt and tiny covered buttons along the top give it a retro flair and the classic and simple shape make it perfect for the modern dress wearer.  It would look great with a pop of color from jewelry or heels!  Check it out in the Etsy shop today!
