When Alice Wood visited Willie Otey Kay for a wedding consultation, Kay, who was overbooked, took measurements and referred wood to her sister, Mildred Otey Taylor. Taylor constructed this gown out of lace, satin, and tulle, and adorned the back with two large cabbage roses. Courtesy of Mrs. Alice Wood Watkins
