Bank Holiday Monday
August Bank Holiday is a traditional time for heading to the seaside. In the Victorian era both children and adults would dress in sailor outfits, cram a straw hat on their heads, walk the promenade, dig in the sand, put their toes in the water and generally have a jolly good time.
We stayed home in the quiet of the garden. Since visiting the Laura Ashley exhibition in Bath I thought that I would dig out my Laura Ashley sailor dress for Patti's Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet Style. It's been hanging in my wardrobe for quite a while. It's from the late 70's or early 80's, I can't remember exactly when. It is made of beautifully soft baby needlecord in a favourite colour, (which the camera has exaggerated somewhat.)
The minute I give it to a charity shop it's sure to be back in fashion!
