I can sort of understand a
desire to have pleats at the top of some pants to create volume. I have pants of that nature, with a couple of pleats at the top, where by "create volume" one means "allow the top of the pants to expand to a point whereby they have sufficient volume to accomodate the volume of me that is occupying them."
However, I somewhat doubt that that's really the sort of "create volume" that they meant, and there is a difference between a couple of discreet discrete pleats to relieve an area of otherwise-pulled-tight plain fabric, and, y'know, pleats
. (On the other hand, looking at photos, it seems at least plausible to me that that may be what they started out meaning, at least.)
While looking for photos to see what this meant, I came across this photo
of actual carrot pants
(well, at least, actual carrots). And also this pair of pants
, which are carrot pants but even worse.
(Also, about women's T-shirts being cut short: Is this just T-shirts, or all shirts? I know someone who sometimes has annoyance of her shirts being a bit short, and I wonder if this implies that getting new ones might help with that. But mostly the problems are not T-shirts.)Edited at 2010-08-07 05:24 pm (UTC)
