LOL it sure is a thing!! The fabrics awesome, but the style is "shudder" "ooohhh aahhh!!". What about a sleeveless smock/dress,( I wouldnt use too much of the fabric, its too circus act) black long sleeved tee under it and black leggings and boots, and a bag to match....good luck, cant wait to see the result.

Hi Rowena, yes just a tshirt and stretch lace, the trick is not to stretch the lace as its being sewn on, the result is a smooth cosy pair of knickers, that dont show through your clothing.
