What you're not seeing is the front and back views were even more unappealing than the side view. Anyway, cropped shirts are best left for the slim and trim. Did this girl even look in the mirror before she left? I can't imagine she did. She could add a nice supportive bra and rid herself of those cut off, sausage casing jeans. Is she pregnant? I seriously doubt it. But this look screams of Mr. Blackwell's worst dressed list as well as questions of is she or isn't she. The only thing I like about her outfit are her spanking white clean shoes. Must be for back to school. And if she's showing her muffin top, at least her belly skin is nice and smooth. After all, my belly skin will never be shown for public viewing post 4 kids without a tummy tuck.
As you can see, my sewing activities have been almost nil as of late. School starts Monday and I'm cramming in appointments left and right, doing back-to-school shopping, among last minute fun activities for the kids. However, that leaves me plenty of time for clothing choice/fashion analysis of the general public. Not that I have any right to be judging fashion, but some of the outfits I'm seeing make me want to choke. They're really bad. And I thought teens liked watching Project Runway and What Not To Wear. At least my girls do. Oh...shaking my head! Did her mother not see this outfit? Did she not say anything? Is her mother wearing the same "get up"?
Hmmm...I guess these are the musings of a sewing-starved woman. Nothing else to do but analyze at this point in time.
Next post to be worked on--comparison of a kid's "name brand" sewing machine and a "name brand" low-end computerized machine. Sometimes I simply can't understand how a company can put their logo on a machine that has the potential to frustrate a rank beginner as well as lure unsuspecting consumers into buying such a machine. I tell you, it has to be damn good marketing including a beautiful box. It makes me think that all companies should do away with overpriced kiddie machines considering all the issues that have the potential to cause sewing nightmares for newbies with a market niche that needs to be encouraged. After all, we want to turn on a new generation! Not turn them off to the world of sewing.
