Wedding dress in lemon point d'esprit netting

This wedding dress was made by Kathleen Fuller for her label, Minerva Gowns. It is made special by restrained use of a dainty matching cotton lace edging (with a leaf motif) which has been arranged to form a spiral at each side of the neckline, to trim the edges of the inset waist panel and to edge the short puffed sleeves. The primrose yellow acetate under slip of this gown beautifully sets off the fine cotton hail spot net overdress.
