Weddings across time

This week Pioneer Park hosted a wedding and I also helped Heather Waide install a new exhibition in the Roundhouse that features a wedding dress made for Jessie Hogarth (nee Mather) in 1958.

Griffith seamstress Myrtle Crockford of La Vogue worked without a pattern to create the dress, based on a photograph Jessie had from a newspaper.

Heather has contributed many hours to Pioneer Park over the years, including restoring a number of dresses that feature in the National Dress Registry.

It's been great learning about their restoration and conservation from her.
