Bessi Silk Jersey Floral 1970s Vintage Dress Belt Firenze Italia Blue


This vintage silk jersey dress from Bessi is in as new condition! The Floral print has beautiful shades of blue and green and it comes with its original fabric belt The dress was purchased at I Magnin in the late 1970's and has a back zipper and a fun flounce hem. This dress has slight shoulder pads, and it can be worn with or without the belt. This is in a larger size but can be worn as a flowing dress for a smaller size bust as well. Made in Italy. Please use the measurements as your best guide, as vintage clothing sizes are very different form modern sizes. I would estimate this dress to be a modern day US size 12/14, depending on how loose you would like it to be. BUST: up to 40" HIPS: 44" LENGTH from nape of neck: 44" SLEEVES from shoulder seam: 23"
