Lay of Nashville, Tennessee developed his business by selling a product that was familiar to people in his region, but later would become America's favorite potato chip. ... Wait a minute. What is this crap? Sorry everybody, this is the history of Rufffles brand potato chips. My bad. Here's the real info:
Ruffles in clothing have been extremely popular throughout history. There are a lot of technical artistic reasons for this; the human eye's preference for contrast in design, the pleasant fusion of order and chaos in a garment, and there's the little fact that Queen Elizabeth liked ruffles, so every woman in England and much of Europe followed suit.
Ruffles are formed by using thread to bunch up the fabric around the neck and wrists in pleasant patterns. Ruffles brand potato chips are made by cutting the potato ships with ridged slicers. Ruffles in clothing are perfect for denoting a woman's high status and accenting her beauty and femininity. Ruffles brand potato chips in clothing are, like, a real drag, man; even if you get rid of the crumbs, you still have these tiny little grease marks and stuff.
The chemise is worn under outfits like a medieval slip. They absorb any perspiration or assorted body soils and protect the outer garment from wear and tear. Our chemises are made from the same soft cotton muslin used to back baby quilts. They come with drawstring necklines and have very long sleeves for that extra touch of elegance. They are machine washable. One size fits all.
