1970s Soft Pastel Bessi Silk Jersey & Chiffon Maxi Dress

This is an absolutely beautiful and feminine Bessi maxi dress! You can easily see her days at Pucci strongly influencing the design. The palette is soft and whimsical with pale mint mixed with soft pinks and tangerines, all mixed together masterfully. I love the contrasting border that defines and anchors the cut of the dress and highlights the front plunge. Made of a mix of silks, the bodice is a silk jersey so is easy to wear and feels fabulous on. The skirt is a silk chiffon in a matching print over a solid cream colored interior skirt. It is a nice slightly larger size and I did not pin it on the mannequin so you can see how it will fit on a smaller frame as well. This is truly a fabulous gown and in excellent condition! Shipped professionally dry cleaned
