Little did Miss Verna Lee Fisher suspect, when she posed in her clever crossword puzzle swimsuit and swimcap back in 1933, that she'd be part of a trend that would continue to....this very weekend!
I thought I'd come up with something original when I decided to make Michael a crossword puzzle shirt from a quilting cotton print, but boy was I wrong!
Behold a brief but comprehensive array of crossword apparel, from sneakers to headgear and everything in between. And speaking of brief, yes, that's a crossword puzzle thong down below!
Personally, I think Michael's shirt is going to top all of these and I hope when you see it you'll agree. I am somewhat partial to the high-tops and the stockings, however.
Readers, would you purchase/make/wear any of these? (Have you already?)
Hope you're not feeling overwhelmed with crossword puzzle prints just yet -- the big reveal is coming soon.
