This dress set was purchased in a Dodge City Kanas thrift store in 1996. I wear it on special occasions, including to give a lecture in Tennessee on "The Last Supper". The series illustrates the final meals of U.S. death row inmates, and this audience seemed in favour of capital punishment. This dress is so lovely and well-made, and it gives me strength. You know, when you have on the right outfit for the task at hand.
