The skirt

The skirt

My father and mother travelled a lot. They had not had the possibility in their youth. In the 30thies there was a lack of money and during the Second World War it was excluded.

They were in Japan one year before me. As I packed my suitcase my mother strongly recommended me to take the medium blue pleaded skirt, which I had got from her, along. She said that it was very modern in Japan.

I wore it a couple of times in Tokyo before I realized that it was a part of the Japanese student’s uniform.
