But as Stormy has just suggested ... let me present some words

from Enchanting Most delightful designer herself
((well yes it's second life of course the horse can talk ))

"Greetings and thank you for purchasing this gown!
Now I know you're probably thinking, 'Kembri, what in the heck is Devil's Cloth?'

It's stripes! No really, I'm going to quote something here so bear with me! "
"Pastoureau describes the medieval period's tendency to use stripes to identify those viewed as outcasts in society, including: serfs, the condemned, prostitutes, jugglers, clowns, hangmen, Jews, lepers, cripples, "bohemians, and heretics. The negative, or evil, stripe also appears in iconography and literary texts, worn by: treacherous knights, adulterous wives, disloyal brothers, cruel dwarves, greedy servants, Lucifer, the madman of the Book of Psalms, and Judas. A fascinating illustration included in the book, from a mural in Italy painted around 1340, depicts three young women condemned to prostitution saved by Saint Nicolas -
"all three in striped garments. In 1254, when monks of the Carmelite Order returned from the Holy Land in striped cloaks, scandal broke out - they were ridiculed and accused of being in league with the Antichrist. The wearing of striped habits for all religious orders was banned. In 1310 a 'cobbler said to be a cleric' was sentenced to death for being married and being "caught in striped clothes"

My sister, Ghilayne, was talking to me and I was having issues trying to name this gown. She suggested the name, then pointed me at the book! You must love sister's who share a passion for history and textiles! So this very fun, lovely, brightly striped gown is made of Devil's Cloth in Green!
I hope you enjoy the gown. I've included a modest black blouse for those who wish it, but you really don't need to wear it if you don't want too. The lack of any kind of drawers or panties is intentional. After all, this IS a Devil's cloth gown!
There are glitch pants though, so your virtue is somewhat safe. Enjoy!
Cordially yours,Kembri Tomsen
