Molly Guessed Correctly!

I have been sewing vestments, or to be more specific, albs.
I have sewn 3 this year, of 2 different styles.  All without a pattern. 

I found out here that no great change has taken place in the shape of the alb since the ninth century.
Fascinating!  I love being a part of such an ancient religious tradition! 
Imagine all the seamstresses over the centuries who have sewn albs for monks and priests... most without electricity!

(PS: Thanks, Zac, for posing in the alb... barefoot, even!)

Woot! Victory is mine!

Great job on the alb-- Zac looks like Obi Wan Kenobi; wise for his years. :)

Hiding? In the chasuble closet? Me? NEVER!
