The Mallala Museum held an exhibition of wedding gowns from their collection during History Month May 2018. The event called "Down the Aisle - Wedding dresses through the years" featured 19 gowns displayed throughout the museum.
The bodice of the c.1930 cream silk crepe gown featured a round neckline with a low waist blouson style and an inserted embroidered panel at the centre front. Soft pleating fell from the piped neckline either side of the embroidery to the low waist where an attached low band was finished with a self bow. The sleeves were elbow length and the skirt was softly pleated and finished at mid calf length. The gown was fully lined with silk material.
