Description:This dress was worn by Mrs Dunn when she was married on 3 September 1962 at Wolstanton Methodist Church.
It is quite typical of the wedding fashion of the day.

Everyday fashion in the 1960s started to see the length of skirt start to creep upwards. This trend was reflected in wedding fashion in shorter length dresses like this one.
