I’m trying to set up a new area on my website that will contain a few ‘coffee-break’ activities and trivial stuff (as opposed to the deadly serious business of Ladybird Book collecting!).

Pretty dresses in well-remembered books seem to have had a powerful effect on the memories of a number of the people (women) who contact me. There often appears to be one particuar dress (or ‘frock’ – that seems like a good Ladybird word) which was the subject of childhood envy and longing. But which one?

Please take a look here and vote
