Pauline Trigere Blue Ribbon Printed Black Silk Dress, 1950s

About

This is a beautiful example of Trigere's earlier work. She was a master at cut and often fitted garments directly on a model. She was also very hands on and with earlier pieces like this you can be sure that she was personally involved in their construction. The dress is made from a very fine, light silk satin in black. Onto this is a 'ribbon' design in tone of blue that covers the straps and circle the dress at the neck, bust, hips, skirt and hem. The ribbon at the waist is perhaps my favorite part of the dress. It is actually the belt, constructed from a cut of of one of those ribbon sections and backed properly. It is genius and completes the illusion of being wrapped with the ribbon. The dress itself is a simple shift with a nipped in waist. The neckline is squared off at the front and back with the back sitting a little lower. The skirt is a simple pencil shape that is sleek and neat. It is all hand finished and exquisitely constructed. Excellent condition. Fully lined in the same fine silk as the exterior. All hand finishes. The dress closes with a side back zipper. The belt closes with hook and eye. Signed all around the interior waist stay Bust: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 13" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 17" flat across from side seam to side seam Bodice: 15.5" from top of shoulder to waist Skirt: 26" from waist to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
