This wedding dress was worn by Minnie Beatrice Long for her marriage to a railway worker in September 1910. The wedding took place at St Andrews Church, Leytonstone. The full length dress of lilac plain weave cotton was made for Minnie by a local dressmaker. It is made in the fashion of 1910, a long 'princess' line dress with an elegant flared skirt and elaborate details created by rows of pintucks. Machine-made lace is used for decoration. Hand-made lace was expensive and exclusive and new technology for producing it cheaply made lace affordable for everyone.
