Oh that is hilarious! I always wonder about the thought process that leads up to these designs. Perhaps there was alcohol involved. :)

Perhaps it is a comment on the true position of women in the patriarchy.

Then again, maybe not.

I'd be afraid some jackass would bite my bun!
(Funny..my security word was "gatch" which describes this dress very nicely)

You want fries with that??

MOG said...

Oh, man! How...odd.

Isn't it technically a "Cheeseburger Dress?"

Some people simply have too much time on their hands. That being said, the thing would be great at costume parties.

Oy. Vey.

Go to Rose-Kim knits today, or any Thursday...although today is a rather spectacular train wreck of 'knitted fashion'.

I'm going to be a little bitter here and remark that it ticks me off that stuff like this dress - which is unwearable by nearly any woman but "edgy" gets all kinds of press time on various craft sites, but the lovely intricate stuff that so many people do - lace shawls, cabled sweaters -tend to get ignored.

They take equal (at least) skill, but I presume because the lace or cables are "traditional" they are seen as boring and not-worthy of mention.
