OK! I admit it…. this is a thinly disguised excuse to share this knitting pattern with you!!!! Oh how I laughed when I found this one! But as the saying goes…. things come around. Perhaps I’ll be seen sporting a pair of these some time soon?? Ok, not likely…
It’s Terminology Tuesday again and this week in the spotlight is…
Hot Pants…. of the particularly 70’s variety…
“A slang term coined by fashion industry newspaper Women’s Wear Daily in early 1971 to describe women’s short shorts made of luxury fabrics and leather. Often worn with coloured tights and fancy tops as evening wear and on city streets.”
