Gorgeous vintage Averardo Bessi white cotton jersey summer dress, with a beautiful signed floral print, from the late 1970s to early 1980s.

The print is delicately, expertly rendered, with poppies, irises, sprays of forget-me-nots, and lilies.

Three quarter sleeves, princess seams, all ending with a flirty trumpet skirt. The sleeves, neckline, and hem are all trimmed with Bessi's ironic border treatments, set off with cornflower blue and cornflower blue and white striped piping.

A fabulous cool and comfortable designer dress, with clear Pucci influence, by another master Italian designer, Averardo Bessi.
