New at Couture Allure - The Most Wonderful Pauline Trigere Dress

1950s Pauline Trigere silk full skirt dress
I listed several dresses for spring and summer this past week, but today, I just want to share one with you.  This 1950s full skirt dress by Pauline Trigere is a rare and wonderful treat.  Lovely roses adorn the substantial silk twill fabric and the skirt is huge with a 322" circumference at the hem.  Trigere pieces from the 40s and 50s are quite difficult to find now and I've never seen a full skirted dress by her for sale anywhere.  As an added bonus, it's not too tiny!  Bust 38" and waist 27".  Love it?  Me too!

Honestly, if you've got a 27 waist and a 38 bust, more power to you (in all kinds of ways) :-) I can't get over the hem circumference. The easing must have been insane.
