This mini dress was designed and manufactured in Melbourne by Prue Acton P/L in 1967.

According to the donor, it was a very early dress in Swiss voile, sewn by Eileen Lorraine. It is typical of the 'Victoriana' look then popular. Not a very big seller as it was quite expensive due to the fabric, lining and detail. A cheaper version came in crepe (Estacell).
