navy wool suiting I got on the cheap at fabric.com. Washed & dried three times on high heat to full/shrink (result: washable wool, plus nubby organic texture, woo!). Designed and drafted the pattern, lined the skirt part (not the yoke) with microfiber T-shirt knit in light celadon. It pulls on. And it's so comfy I feel like I should sleep in it. Embroidered the hem, yoke seam, and neckline with palestrina knots in pale blue.

whatcha think?

The connotations wearing my nerves thin
Could it be semantics generating the mess we're in?
I understand that language breeds stereotype
But what's the explanation for the malice, for the spite?
