Diana wore this suit at least two times - on Dec. 6th 1983 (thanks Canadiana for the date), and on Mar. 4 1985.

Finally, it showed up on Apr. 1 1992 at her father's funeral. This time her sister Sarah was wearing it.

Diana wore the Catherine Walker pink suit with purple lapels to the Garter Service in 1991. She wore the hat backwards that day - the bow in front. You don't find many photos of that day but I wanted to add it to kwanfan's list.

Thanks a lot kwfan for posting all those great pics - and especially the one of Diana's green gown in your post # 148 as I don't remember having ever seen this one before.
I believe the designer must have been Bruce Oldfield who also designed Diana's famous backless silver lamé dress.
I realize that everybody is likely to join in bashing this kind of overblown 80's style these days, but then... Diana somehow managed to pull it off. Big shoulders, big hair, a dress looking as if it was made for a 'Dynasty' episode - and the overall image is still smashing.
Later, Diana followed the new doctrine of 'minimal chic' just as well (the Victor Edelstein red dress from post # 142 is just timeless, one of my all-time favorites), but in spite of those who ridicule the 80's style in general, I'd say that this kind of 'power dressing' was actually quite fascinating too!

That's right Smg9295. I posted a picture of it & it has been merged into Post #148.

Then it made its way into Sarah Ferguson's wardrobe. Sarah wore it to Diana & Charles' wedding on July 29 1981.That is Sarah, sitting in the front row (the 4th person in from the aisle.) She is beside Diana's former flatmates.

Sarah wore it again to Ascot on June 20 1985 when she had just started dating Andrew.

It is not the same dress.Diana Spencer gave Sarah Ferguson the fabric left over from the dress so that Sarah could have something made to wear to Diana's wedding if you look closely you will see the difference

Ygraine,
At first, I thought you were wrong about Diana's dress. However, I went back and looked and Diana's top was like a jacket. It looks like Sarah's has a small opening at the top.
So you were right!
By the way, I love your avatar. So cute!

You may be right Ygraine. I never thought of the possibility that this suit was made from leftover fabric.

However I'm not sure. Diana often took her outfits and had them done over in a new style. I had assumed that that's what happened here. It looks like Sarah herself had the outfit changed. The way it is when she is wearing it at Ascot looks different from the way it is when she wore it to the wedding.

Does Sarah talk about this dress in her autobiography? Anyone have a good picture of her wearing it at the wedding?

Great photos I especially like the last photo she's representing the U.S.A with her sweater.
