A compilation of home movie material which includes members of the Ayling family giving a comical fashion show in a garden, and enjoying an outing to the beach.
Female members of the Ayling family parade in and out of the back door of a house, participating in a fashion show in the garden. They model overcoats and men's suits and hats, whilst a young boy dresses as a priest. The cameraman later catches the women laughing as they play dress-up in the garden.
Women walk arm-in-arm along a beach. Two women who are dressed identically in trouser suits dance together for the camera, using the front of a beach hut as a proscenium arch. The film ends with images of three women playing leapfrog on the sand.
Fashion Notes: This film shows a home-staged fashion show in the garden. The women parade in coats with fur collars and then dress in men suits and overcoats. The film contains footage of women dancing dressed in floral patterned all-in-one jumpsuits and women wearing bathing suits and swimming caps.
