1960s Baby Blue Pauline Trigere Shift Dress

This is a beautifully constructed Pauline Trigere dress in an interesting puffed silk brocade fabric that is a pale ice blue. It is very beautiful and deceptive in that despite its heavily worked appearance it is actually shockingly light! The dress is cut beautifully as one would expect from Trigere - a simple A-line sheath that flows from the rounded shoulders. The front is notched in a deep V and the sleeves are kept slim with each ending with a small notch at their hem that mirrors the neckline! There is an attached piped and padded belt detail that I put to the back - you could almost loop this over the neck as well - a quirky and fun detail! The lining is the finest grade dyed to match tissue silk, making it feel amazing on! Excellent condition

The dress is fully lined in a pale blue, fine silk and closes with a back painted metal zipper. Hand placed zipper and the lining is finished by hand as well. Note that the color is a true pale iced baby blue in person.
