Much has been said in Piskie blogs about the need for black shoes in the sanctuary. But little about the trauma of finding clergy shirts that fit. So, dear readers, I ask you: since I am going to be in Darlington and Newcastle this week, is it worth driving the extra 2 1/2 hours South to Derby (and back again, of course) in hopes of meeting the one clerical outfitter who seems to think she can make a decent shirt for me? …who even offers to custom tailor a template till we get it right?
Such a long way — but if it works, and I could find a shirt that didn’t have to be tucked in, just think of how much easier life would be. (I can almost hear the swish of long full skirts now…)
This blog is on holiday for a week. If I can find somewhere to post from, I will.
