One of the sons who is an altar server when not singing in the schola to me recently. Note: In a past life, I worked in a theatre costume shop...bustles, frockcoats, bodysuits, yards and yards of flounces, feathers, and folly.
Son: Mama, can you make me a summer weight cassock?
Me: Why, do you like this TLM business?
Son (glaring at me): Please?
Me: Do you want pockets?
Son: That would be nice.
Me: Let me look up fabric.com. Anything else?
Son: Oh, a nice pleated surplice would be nice in all-cotton.
Me: You want lace, too?
Son: No, just pleats.
