Went shopping today for fall clothes for Emily. School has begun and she needs a new wardrobe of non-shorts, non-skorts, non-Tshirts that will take her through the cold months. There are times when I'm in the stores and ask myself, "They're only charging $8 for this? Why do I even bother to sew? The fabric alone will probably cost more." Today, though, the selection was uninspiring. The dresses, especially. So I might have to put Chicken aside for some jumpers and fall-type outfits sooner than I had intended. At least before Halloween, when the real clothes-making begins.
