Dress - Prue Acton, Mini, Check & Floral, circa 1967 Reg. No: SH 942399
- This dress was designed and manufactured in Melbourne by Prue Acton P/L in circa 1967.
It was originally worn by the donor, but not a favourite of hers. It was the period of hot-pants fashions. Transition time for the company - whether to stay with the young look or to move upmarket.
- Short-sleeved smock styly mini dress in multi-coloured check and floral patterns. Predominant colours are green, red and mustard. Front opening is fastened by coloured plastic buttons. Two patch pockets at the front.
