The following excerpt from The Written Wardrobe shows how one author turns memories of clothing into poetry.

From Angelle Scott’s “Home Sewn”:

“…I admired her,

traced my finger along the rotary cutter’s spikes, sat at her feet, cut patterns
that I would sew for my Cabbage Patch Kid, using her pinking shears.”
