The economic downturn our country is suffering became very apparent to me this weekend. This country is experiencing a severe shortage.
That shortage relates to the raw materials needed to produce textiles.
Those textiles are then needed to produce t-shirts that actually COVER my soon-to-be-teenage-daughter's midsection and other important areas.
There is no other explanation for the lack of fabric used by manufacturers to make clothes for teenage girls!
I took Emily to Plato's Closet this weekend. It is a consignment shop for teenagers. I had never been in one before.
Given my age it is safe to assume I had also never been in an Abercrombie store, a Hollister store, Wet Seal, Forever 21, nor any of those other teenage mecca's of clothing.
I see the future.
It is a bit scary from here.
I will be investing in burlap to cover my daughters for the next twenty or so years.
Got to get going tonight. I have some burlap t-shirts to sew.
