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 from Japan, possibly sewn by Eileen Lorraine. It is typical of the 'Victoriana' look then popular. Lines are a typical design feature for Prue Acton.
