“But in Narnia your good clothes were never your uncomfortable ones. They knew how to make things that felt beautiful as well as looking beautiful in Narnia: and there was no such thing as starch or flannel or elastic to be found from one end of the country to the other.”

C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle

This is a pretty good description of my sewing philosophy. I disagree with him about flannel and elastic, though. I’m sure both of those things were very different in the ’50’s when he was writing :).
