I am not so sure that shirt is not just a table cloth that has been altered to look like something chic. My grandma used to have a table cloth that looked oddly similar draped over table at home. It was not the kind of table cloth we were ever allowed to actually use, it was just there to make our family look more respectable than we actually were. Like anyone was ever going to believe we ate at the dining room table as a family anyways.
That table cloth served the same purpose as the good napkins we were never allowed to use. I am not even referring to the cloth ones that need to be cleaned in the laundry. I am talking about the cocktail napkins with the "classy" designs. May God have mercy on your soul if you were caught using one of those to clean up a spill. That is a surefire way to get chastised for using the decorative stuff while the napkins she took from Dunkin' Donuts are sitting in the cupboard. I probably should not be too hard on her because I do the same thing now, there's no way I am wasting my hard earned money on napkins.
