Pattern description from Stitch ‘N Bitch Nation: “Remember when Thelma and Louise first tackled the mud flap girl in that great chick flick? When they lured an offensive truck driver with a girl-clad truck off the road, women everywhere cheered. But in the end our unfortunate heroines died. On Sex in the City, liberated Samantha sported a mud flap girl necklace. She went on to stay happily single, remaining carefree and proudly alive. Now, that’s worth commemorating on a mud flap. This tank was designed for all the strong, sassy, female-positive women everywhere. What’s better than a sexy girl sporting a sexy girl image and taking it as her own?”
