Once upon a time there was a girl that lived in Belgium. She loved to sew and had made many wonderful things before. But oh, she didn't dare sewing with stretch fabrics. Oh dear no, that would be way out of line. What if she broke a needle? Or what if she would ruin the fabric? It was unthinkable. One day, however, a little helper came along. The helper convinced her to give it a try and so she did.

She measured and measured, drew out a pattern, cut out the fabric and sewed, all night long. It seemed as if her life was depending on it. Finally, the fall flower dress was finished. She put it on and immediately felt like a princess. A fall princess, you could say. She thanked her little helper and wandered off into the distance. She had never been happier.









And the dress and the girl lived happily ever after.

The end.
