This amazing and rare Pauline Trigere set is the absolutely stunning. It really is one of my favorites from the vintage pieces by her that I have had come through my hands. The skirt is a supermodel length maxi and has the perfect amount of fullness to it. The fabric is wonderful with a fine ribbed texture and it has been hand dyed a brilliant green. It appears to be a mix of a polished cotton and perhaps a silk that gives it a slight sheen and gives it enough of a crispness to it that is almost like a light canvas in feel. This allows for a certain amount of body for it to be able to hold the intended shape. The skirt wraps with ties that wind through the waist band. The front has beautiful pleating and pockets sit along each seam. The top has a sexy halter top that wraps up and around the neck and is cut to leave the back almost completely bare. I love the intricate seam work that runs down and into the waistline and plunging front. This still has its original tag and also a envelope with an extra button for the halter neckline. Worn together it looks like a full proper dress but you have the extra bonus and versatility to wear it as separates. Excellent condition
The skirt is unlined and the top lined in a matching color polished cotton. The top closes with a fabric covered button at the neck and hidden flat hook and eye at the back waist. The skirt wraps and ties to close with a hidden hook & eye along the wrapped edge. Pockets on each side of the skirt. Note the the hook of the closure at the waist is set in just under 2" so you could adjust this easily to get more room. The potential adjustments will allow it to fit a broader range of sizes.
