Toe seam update
Re-attempted these cotton and nylon "franken-tights"--cotton top, woven to nylon legs, capped with cotton toes--with a pair of looser-fitting boots. The thickish toe seam was okay that way. Still not great with shoes which are at all tight, toe-wise, but should work with the majority of my shoes.
Sweet idea, but...
Here's a lovely thought, for those with paltry closet space: a reversible skirt. Instead of a skirt lined with plain material, you've one lined with a different skirt fabric. "One" of the skirts should also have a cool underlayer effect as a result (the longer skirt need only have a deep-enough hem).
Too bad it's poorly implemented here. The fabrics and patterns don't look nice (pictured above was the best of the lot), skirts are dryclean-only, and expensive ($98). Still fancy the concept, preferably using non-iron materials.
For the imaginative photography alone, this indie line is worth a shot (in fact I have one of her skirts on order).
