When i say babies in reference to my Horrockses dresses i say it in respect that they are my “children” i really do love them, i sort of wish i didn’t hold sold a connection to my vintage clothes, as it means even if they don’t fit me i couldn’t bring myself to sell them. This piece is a real beauty though. Of my Horrockses numbers it is the only true “ballgown” style dress. It is in excellent condition with the cotton having a slight sheen to it. I think (due to the label) that this is a slightly later piece than my other Horrockses numbers, but i really do love it. The bold floral print is perfectly set off by the muted pale pink background and helps it to be both elegant and understated.
