The Twenty Dollar Miracle

Please choose a format above.

A long long time ago before the invention of sweatpants by Thaddeus P.J. Comfy sparked a worldwide activewear revolution, the American woman was considered the best dressed and most dressed woman in the world.

This was due to Yankee ingenuity, which produced a fashionable, well-made dress to sell for twenty dollars or less. This was considered a miracle and there is speculation that someone at the National Cotton Council Of America may soon be granted sainthood by Pope Benedict. 

Enjoy this short about the inner workings of dress manufacturing and don’t let the Devil tempt you with Prada!
