When a young girl received an invitation to the North Carolina Debutante Ball, a friend from her eastern North Carolina town passed Willie Kay’s phone number along to her mother. She visited Kay’s house soon thereafter to be measured and later returned to be fitted in her dress. Embellished by Elizabeth Otey Constant with nylon lace, sequins, and beads.
