I don't often try colourising but I had a go at this one. Interesting that japeflakes and I both chose (independently) a similar dress colour :)

Hi Stephen Laing,

Would you be able to tell us the colour of the hair, eyes, clothes would be great to get the photo restored as original as possible.

Thanks

One more version. I originally aimed for a yellow dress (summer on the beach!) but with moderate saturation, it just came out green. I still have a whole lot to learn about mixing and blending colours but this colour is a bit closer to what I originally had in mind.
