The black dashed line cutting through Marie Antoinette is used to represent the placement of the zipper. It's not actually part of the design. And the text translates to read "let them eat cake."

OMG, this is really clever. I can just picture wearing a red shirt underneath and making it all that much more dramatic. Love the illustration as well. 5

Nomad: I was only concerned with how it worked on a hoody, since the competition only mentioned creating a design for a hoody.

Thanks.

I only ask because for my wishbone hoody I had to also make it into a tee for printing, and I think the original instructions for this contest mentioned it although they dont now.

Anyhow, this is really genius, my coworker just snorted at it.

Brioche is brioche, not cake, malheureux ! A part ça, great hoodie compo and lovely style !

Plu Shu: Brioche might not actually be cake, but I found multiple sources that say "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche" is where the famous "let them eat cake" saying came from.

In the end I guess it really doesn't matter since I've read that historians have never found any proof of her actually saying those infamous words.

Thanks again everyone.

I read that too, that she never said those things, and they actually originated a hundred years before with another princess, and may have traveled down through different princesses that way.

My Threadless secretary just informed me that if you put your hand in the pocket you can make her boobs jiggle. She claims that's a selling point.

Great concept- but I'm not loving the style....feels like clip art (I know it's not).

halliesaurus

Love the concept, but brioche is actually bread. Gâteau is cake.
