    This is a rather nice Mary Quant polka-dot dress.........but I know the Quant label was not just 60s..............so is this dress from then or later, and if so, when?<p>

    Another polka-dot dress, this one is a little more 'dressy' - it has thin shoulder straps bearing the makers name - David Butler. At the front there are two long drapes hanging loose from each side of the bust - these cross over the shoulders (hiding the name straps) and are tied at the back. No iodea of a date for it - guessing at 80s??????<p>

  2. There she is in the backyard again! Does she ever work?

    I think the top one would be late 70s, early 80s and the second one 80s. '

    Polka Dots should do well!

    Every time I've ever seen that Quant label, it's been an 80s garment. We have that label and it is scheduled for the next resource update.

    I've never heard of David Butler, but the dress looks to be 80s.

    Thanks both of you! :)

    Lizzie I think there is a different Butler label already on the labels pages - this is a different style label from the same guy, so I'll post it to be added.

    Linda - can you just keep the comments quiet about Madeline being the back yard again - don't want her getting ideas above her station!!!!! :P
