My college costume teacher’s pet peeve was hem badly done or not historically acruit.
The other weekend I was watching a performance live music and dance and I could not help but be distracted. The dancers where wearing different ready-made garments in white, sometimes layered. I got thinking about the Threads article showing how one can camoflage facings in white or light colored clothes by interlining the facings (or pockets) with colored fabric that best matches skin tone. Why hasn’t ready made figured this out?
At a performance it seems like sometimes you might want a layered effect: T-shirt over tank, sarong over pants but not in other cases: the pockets showing thru on baggy pants, bras showing.
What is your peeve de pet?
