Going away dress with striped scarf

Judith planned to sew her own going away dress but decided at the last minute to buy this House of Raymonde dress locally in Rotorua. The marcasite brooch used in the photo is the same one she wore on the day to hold the scarf in position. She also wore navy blue sling back shoes and navy blue gloves.
