Object Name Fragment
Catalog Number 0985.09.00011b
Description The portion of skirt is made of sheer white fabric embroidered along lower edge with blue thread flowers, green thread stems, and white accents. Straw is also woven into the design of the floral wreath. This piece is believed to have come from the larger skirt remnant (a), but as embroidered design does not match that along lower edge of skirt, it is not believed to have been part of the garment at that area.
Owned Claudia A. Williams [Mrs. John L. Watkins]
Provenance The skirt belonged to the wedding gown worn by Claudia A. Williams at her marriage to Dr. John L. Watkins in Greenville, North Carolina.
