Recycled design, also. Here is a white, blue, and possibly another version. I don't know if the last picture is of the blue dress or a different color. I think there was a red dress with blue lapels but am not sure.

Yes, I think you are right Lady Jean, that the last two pics are of the same dress. I know somewhere I have a colour picture from Apr 12 1988 (your last picture).

I can't think of what you mean by the red dress with blue lapels?? Do you have a general idea of when or where she wore it?

Thanks for straightening that out. I guess a red one with blue lapels is only in my imagination!

Excellent work! I never noticed before that those two dresses were made on the same pattern, only in different colors.

Perhaps you are thinking of the red dress with the white lapels that she wore in Jan 1988 in Australia?

Diana wore this cream satin bow blouse often, c.1983 - 1985. Then it seems she either gave or lent it to her sister Sarah for their appearance at West Heath in 1987. At this event Sarah is also wearing a seersucker suit of Diana's (as pointed out by TRF member Squidgy in post 59 of "Magazine Covers of the late Diana" thread.)

Nice pics Lady Jean! She certainly got her money's worth out of most of her blouses. It seems like at any given time, she would have 3 or 4 favourites which she would wear repeatedly for 2 or 3 years, until they were replaced by a new favourite.

Lady Jean,
That is a good eye on the blue jacket!! I had never seen that outfit before.
I love the black and white version of the coatdress. I think she is at a memorial service to a ferry accident and the outfit is so appropriate. The dress is somber but not totally depressing.
Man, I miss her. Can you imagine what FUN we would be having if she was out and about every day? I would never finish college because I would be on the Web all the time!

Here is a nice view of when she wore the pink quilted jacket to Wimbledon in 1981. She is with her sister Sarah. I think Diana looks so pretty here.
STARE, in Majesty mag.

I thought the reason that she wore it was because she was so tall. She did not want to tower even more over her hosts so she and Catherine Walker came up with this idea.

Has anyone else heard this???

I have seen thousands of pictures of Diana but never with the face veil and it wasn't that flattering. IMO.

While they may have been the same type of BLF logo sweatshirts, I don't think anyone knows for sure if it was the exact same sweatshirt. As a patron of the organization, she could have been given new ones over the years.
