Object Description
White cotton pantaloons (vrakia) with scalloped edge. Cutwork on ruffle around the bottom. The cutwork resembles vines with cut out leaves and flowers. There is the name "Anna" at the top of the pantaloons. They are slit on both sides at the top, with strings so that it can be tied.
Origin
Vrakia were a part of the traditional dress for people of Skiathos, a small island in Greece. They were worn under clothes and were traditionally white. These were a part of Anna's dowry. The cutwork and monogramming was done by Anna Palamidou.
