A three-piece wedding dress of blue watered silk and trimmed with lace. The skirt is box-pleated at the sides and gathered at the back under the overskirt shaped like a continuation of the bodice. The corset is of white ribbed cotton and has a glazed finished. It has an opening at the centre front with two busks of thick whalebone, closing with three engraved metal keyhole and stud fastenings. The corset was worn under the wedding dress.
