Hang in there little skirt
Oh, the mysteries of the universe. For example, why do all major clothes manufacturers - H&M, Zara and Topshop to name a few - insist on adding ribbons to their t-shirts for us to hang them by?
Hello? We have shoulders for that.
I'm sure lots of you fine people out there soon get fed up of constantly tucking away those little annoying bastards that insist on peeking out of your clothes and reach for the scissors to chop them off. Right? Cause that's what I do. And then, of course, you can't bear to throw away the ribbons, as (read in Valley girlish) they're like soooo cuuuuuuute. And then you end up with a bunch of cuuuuuuute ribbons (if you don't feel the need to use the letter U seven times, there's not enough cuteness) just waiting for you to transform them into some amazing DIY project you haven't exactly conceived yet.
Yeah, been there, done that.
Listen sistah, it just ain't happening.
On the other hand, we have the curious case of the ribbonless skirt. According to my totally scientific research, 93,7% of skirts don't come with ribbons on the sides for us to hang them from.
Can you guess where I'm getting to?
So, tonight is the night I will address this injustice. I officially declare this the sewing-the-hang-ribbons-cut-from-my-t-shirts-onto-my-skirts night. Let the sewing begin.
