Life post-Summorum Pontificum, part two

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.
