This is a wonderful early 1990s era dress made in Italy by Averardo Bessi under the “Miss Bessi” label. Bessi is often compared to Pucci, and there was similarity in the complex, colourful mod prints utilized by both during the 1960s. This is a later example - Bessi began his business in 1950, became an exporter in 1959, and began marketing his original signed fabric designs in 1966. The company still exists today, but this is definitely a 1990s example. The dress has a narrow standing collar and a shirt style bodice that does up with four buttons. It has 3/4 length sleeves with button closure cuffs. The waist cinches with a matching sash belt and the dress has a below the knee length. There are matching sewn-in pads at the shoulders and the dress is unlined.

Label: “Miss Bessi Made in Italy”. The content label reads “100% Cotton Made in Italy USA 16” and “Commercial Dry Clean Only”.

Color: Green with pattern in two tones of blue, violet, light green, white and black

Sizing: The size label reads as a US 16, but please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the garment into consideration:

Shoulders: 16” across from shoulder seam to shoulder seam

Sleeves: 18” from shoulder seam

Sleeve Inseam: 12 1/2”

Bust: 44” around

Waist: 42” around, uncinched

Hips: 44” around

Overall length: 42”, measured flat

Condition: It is in very good condition with no wear, tear or pulls - I haven’t had it dry cleaned, but it appears to be clean and ready to use.

This is a very nice quality dress - beautiful cotton and attractive print……
