    I've been watching Land Girls and I'm in love with this dress, I just can't find anything like it! I'm hoping someone would be able to help! I don't mind if it needs some repairs.

    Measurements:
    Bust 34-38
    Waist: 27-28" (Can do smaller or bigger)
    Hips: 38"

    I'm looking to spend around $150 CAD but can spend more if somethings spectacular and layaway is an option. image.jpeg

    It looks like a Jacqmar print to me and would be VERY desirable to collectors.

    So it's safe to assume that this would be hard to find?

    I think so... and VERY expensive if you do find it.

    Agree with Jonathan - amazing print. If you're fortunate to find another one it's likely to be expensive.

    Home Fires was produced for the BBC, which no longer have a costume department after it was sold to Angels in 2008, so I would think this dress was from Angels. They do hold occasional sales where all sorts of items are sold (at all sorts of prices too) You could contact them on the off-chance.

    Hello! Have you had any luck locating this dress? I just wanted to add that I'm watching it right now in an episode of "Foyle's War" called The Russian House. It was shot in 2010.
