I took as my inspiration these lovely women, in an American shipyard in the last war. They all look so pretty and sexy but their welding gear hides it!
But although Tatiana, my model, is very lovely, the clothing makes her look like a peasant! And as the old Lithuanian proverb says, "Why should a passion flower look like a daisy?" The dress hides her lovely bosom and feminine hips.
But the challenge was to make the dress fireproof - or at least fire resistant. So eventually I came up with a blend of pure wool with Indura and Nomex. My garment covers all the areas that might be weld-spattered but is clingy and shows the body's curves. It is flexible so that when the woman walks it doesn't hinder her, and - most importantly - modest enough for no-one to know what is underneath! I'll let you boys into a little secret: most women welders are what you lads describe as 'going commando'! A weld spatter trapped in nylon panties is not good! So this is worn with a supportive Indura T-Shirt that allows flexibility for the arms but keeps certain other areas under control! Another old Lithuanian proverb: "Bunnies are born to hop, but only where the buck wants."
So here it is. I don't know what marks my Tutors will give, but it looks fabulous on Lucinda, and I hope you like it too.
