My eyes were fixed to the task in hand, cutting gift paper to wrap up the surprise packages for Christmas. I roughly measured up a square packet. It was a suit cover for hubby that I bought some time ago.
I turned over the packet, label up and read....."Travel or dust cover suitable for long dresses".
Whew! That was fortuitous. Even a kilt would not match the description of 'a long dress'. It looks like hubby's loss is my gain. Now then, where to find a long dress; maybe there's a silver lining after all!
