Black layered dress with pleats

This was Anna Driffill's mother's dress. She was a very good dressmaker who normally made her own clothes but bought this It's a Cutee dress for her sister's wedding. She wore it under an orange coat with a matching hat. The dress has been shortened and lengthened multiple times depending on the trends of the time.
