I’m wondering whether I can replicate the fabulousness by stitching a plait made from cord or something on to the front (or even the back?) of some of my tights… seeing as it’s 28 degrees C today it’s not really something that requires immediate investigation but this is definitely a look that I’m planning to trot out this winter.
