1960s Crepe A-line Pauline Trigere Dress

This garment is from the personal closets of Jane & Judy Aldridge!

I love this dress. Trigere is one of my favorite designers and this piece is a really special and dramatic dress. Made of a fine silk wool crepe, it is cut to nip in at the waist - done by vertical seaming at the waist seams- and ends in a dramatic, architectural A-line skirt. The top is left sleek and simple. It is lined in a fantastic grade silk so feels like couture on. Judy says: "When I think of the perfect LBD, this Trigere dress perfectly fits the bill. I hope it goes to the perfect home, and is shown off the way it should be!!" I have to say I would agree! It is a wonderful piece and in mint condition!
