Crimes Against Craft

Welcome to my very first Crimes Against Craft Wednesday. Let's get straight into it. Check out the cover of this book, you just know it is going to be good don't you?

Now, look what's inside. See how the models are laughing? They can't believe those swim suits are for real, it must be a joke, surely it's a joke? No, and they haven't seen what they are going to model next.
These little numbers sure wiped the smiles off their faces!

Do those trousers have lining sewn in them? Or are the models wearing really horrible big undies?

I quite like the Mum's little dress on the cover. Is that wrong?

That is hilarious. There is nothing quite like the 70s for crimes against craft, and everything else fashionable, really.

Upon closer inspection, yes they are wearing flesh coloured underwear.

Wrong? I dunno, you are talking to someone who likes more than one of the designs on the 'you knit what?' blog.

I am gobsmacked.

That's all.

Burst out laughing! The pants are very similar to the trouser suit ones I made for a shop proprietor.

Meggie, I wondered if you might recognise this pattern. I have other trouser suit crochet patterns, one Wednesday I might do a crochet trouser suit special. One of them is sure to be at least very similar to the one you made.

I am seriously worrying about myself.

Yes, I am still gobsmacked, but you know, I cannot stop coming back to look at that photo of the trouser suit.

That orange woman seriously does not have a model figure. She has big hips, and the waisties she is wearing under those trousers do her no favours.

And yet, I continue to come back....

It's like watching a car crash, a horrified fascination.

I had a crochet bikini.
It was made by "Hang 10" and was perhaps the only label I owned at the time.

My girlfriend shoplifted it, and it came to me by way of her mother wondering where all the clothes were coming from, so she had to offload a few.
