Some info about the label: Carlye Dress Corporation was formed in 1938 in St. Louis, Missouri. It was one of the great junior dress houses located in the city that was noted for its junior wear industry. In the 1940s, one designer was Margot Kopps McClintock, another was Marion McCoy who later had her own label. Sometime before 1967, Carlye was bought by clothing manufacturing giant Leslie Fay and merged into their existing lines. Written by Lizzie Bramlett, fuzzylizzie.com
