Girls’ summer dresses: A little history of flower power

Here at A Little Lacey, we’re passionate about harnessing the timelessness of flowers as a whimsical motif and symbol of childhood to create gorgeous new styles for any age.

In Western fashion, this look first had its moment in the 16th century, when lace became popular for men and women alike. The European aristocracy used patterns in Venetian and Flemish lace to denote their family allegiance, as well as to express wealth, abundance and prosperity.

Floral designs became a major trend

By the late 17th century, patterned fabrics became more popular with the introduction of Indian printed chintz – and so floral dresses were born, in the form of ‘chemises à la Reine’, a French fashion for court ladies in the period.

Looking at the embroidery on chemises through the 18th and 19th centuries shows that this style didn’t die out, regardless of changes in silhouettes, fabric choices and more.

Our boho chic fabrics were inspired by the widespread popularity of William Morris’ incredible designs in the early 1800s. With this history in mind, we’ve become full converts of the flower power movement and adapted it to make sure our gorgeous princesses look effortlessly elegant, timeless and beautiful with our exclusive range of designs.
