Less than a month after my self-promise to quit sewing, I am back at it again.

In my defense, this is one of those long weekends the kids are spending at Grandma’s house.

Also in my defense, I am working on Halloween costumes, and to buy them would break the bank.

On the other hand, since these are medieval gowns, and one costume is undergown-and-overrobe, and the undergown has to be fully lined, I am going to be making the equivalent of four dresses by October 31.

Maybe we can plan a few more weekends at Grandma’s between then and now …
