You know me. I adore fabulous prints like this one and am always on the lookout for them. This dress is by Jeanne Lanvin from the spring of 1966. Look how the designer has not cut into the design of the textile at the underarms. The dress has more of a caftan type shape. With a print this large, one does have to be concerned with how it will look on the finished garment. Lanvin's designers did a fine job with that, don't you think?
