It was a plain white lace dress which looked a lot like a table cloth or a shower curtain with sleeves. I asked her if that is really what she wants to wear as she receives her BA! She told me “the woman makes the clothing. It may look like that to you in a photo, but once I am wearing it, it will look great.”
