Costume drama

As you know I was fearing a wardrobe malfunction with my Strictly Come Dancing tango costume. I asked Maeve, a friend of mine, if she would kindly come to my rescue….which she did.
I called up to her house to discuss patterns and material. When I espied this on the wall of her sewing room, I got a tad guilty.

It reads:

I HEARBY SWEAR TO NEVER DO ANY COSTUMES AGAIN!!!!
NO MATTER WHAT!
is presented to Maeve Kerrigan for
Swearing never to do any costumes again! No matter what, because it is WAY too much stress, little time, little money and it’s all a load of bullshit!
I was sensing a note of resentment on her part against the art of costume making and I double checked that she didn't mind making MY costume. She reassured me that it referred to making costumes for an entire cast in a show and she had no problem making mine.
Phew, thank God for that!

So a million, trillion thanks Maeve for coming out of retirement to help me out.
