PAULINE TRIGERE DRESS
Vintage 70s-80s dress by collector’s fave Pauline Trigére! Made of high quality super soft & luxurious silk done in a vibrant floral print of purple & emerald green. Straight shift silhouette with a relaxed fit, light square shoulder pads, fantastic sheer chiffon puffed bishop sleeves with wide cuffs, sparkling purple ‘gem’ stone buttons, and invisible rear zipper closure. Lined in emerald silk. Label info: Pauline Trigére / ILGWU union label / Made in USA / Dry clean only. Check out more details below…
*Please note - The cuff buttons are perfectly functional but the mannequin’s arms are too long to close them. I believe the sleeves should be worn full length and button at the wrist, so probably best for a petite frame with relatively shorter arms. The cuffs can be made up to 1/2" (1. 25cm) larger by moving the buttons over.
Very good condition. No flaws found. Appears to have been re-hemmed. Hem is approx 2” (5cm).
Vintage size 12. Best fits: S Petite (6 US / 10 UK)-->This is a size estimate. Please check measurements below to ensure desired fit. Mannequin is approx US size 2, 5’10” 33-24-34. 5 / 178cm 84-61-87. 5. The dress is not pinned back but was very roomy on her. If you'd like more measurements or info please contact me.
