Pauline Trigere Dress - 1956

Pauline Trigere, one of America's most famous designers, designed this dress in the spring of 1956.  I love the unusual capelet collar that sits away from the shoulders.  Made of a beige and white wool tweed with a gathered skirt.  Sold in 1956 for $250 (about $2,112 in today's dollar.)  The doggie hug?  Priceless!
