Double-breasted dress with large collar

This Horrockses dress was worn by Norma Evans daughter Annette. Norma made most of the family’s clothes but eventually she says, "it came to a stage when it was cheaper to buy".

The Horrockses label was made in New Zealand by California Productions, Chancery Street in Auckland.
