God bless American ingenuity

Teen_jacket_dress_1 First, we had the South Beach whorehouse-on-wheels.

Now, a clothing line designed by women members of the Texas polygamous sect raided by authorities in April.

You might remember I have a soft spot in my heart for this story. I actually lived in San Angelo for seven months back in 2001. Despite Texas' conservative reputation, West Texas is a live-and-let-live place.

And it's a place where land can be bought for a few hundred bucks an acre, not a square foot.

Anyway, back to the present.

After the state seized 400 kids amid abuse charges, these women mass-produced clothing for the children.

No arrests have been made in the case. Now, those seamstresses are trying to turn their skill into profit.

Check out their website.

My personal favorite: The Onesie Undershirt.
