This is the sheer cotton lace dress that Willa wore for her recitation of the poem The Song of Hiawatha by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. A satin sash at the waist and a pair of hand-knit striped socks added extra flair to the outfit. At the end of her performance, Willa dropped to one knee and shot an arrow into an imaginary forest.
