February 6/365 My Monk Dress

The fabric: nubby pseudo linen from a remainder table, brown shot with black. The pattern: Vogue 1256 by issey miyake, early 1980s. Size 16, something that Mr. Miyake probably never would have considered possible. I wore the dress into Saks one day while shopping with Mavis, the Queen of Bethesda. A fabulous sales clerk swooned. Score one for the shiksa daughter-in-law.
