A literate, amusing, but all-too-brief short story which has its heart in the right place, but would've been even better if it were longer, and explored the main character's 'plight' in more detail.

Elizabeth Chater exhibits her ability to "stretch" any "material" to delight her reader. How many of us have dreamed of creating the most tantalizing garment, bought the perfect material and come face to face with the "machine". Enjoy a good chuckle and the excerpt from "September Song".
