Speaking of awesome

This Reuters item came up at the top of my Gmail page just now, presumably as a result of you lot's responses to the last post.

Thousands of Indians, many fuming over a recent assault on women in a pub, are vowing to fill bars on Valentine's Day and send cartons of pink panties to a radical Hindu group that has branded outgoing females immoral.

The mental image alone is filling me with nigh-unbearable levels of glee.

*low whistle* Either she works really damn fast, or she's selling herself short. I charged $375 when I did it for a bride in Columbus, and that was in synthetic satin. (Yes, in the red -- my favorite moment EVER from that business was watching her mom's face as she came down the stairs at the final fitting, as all the omg why is my daughter getting married in fire engine red??? flew out the window. *g*) IIRC, the best price I could find on silk (dupioni) would have run her $450. That was at $15/hr for labor.

I really am going to make it for myself one of these years...

Rachel Maddow just featured this story on her show. She said the women who were assaulted formed a Facebook group called [something like] The Consortium of Loose Pub-Going Women.
