EP016: Seamstress

By Sarah Prineas.
Read by Deborah Green.

So, the Godmother. She takes ragged, smudged things and turns them into beautiful Princesses. Why, I don’t know. A hobby? A calling? An obsession? Is she righting the wrongs done to her when she was young?

When I first started here, I had a fantasy. That the Godmother would pluck me out of the row of humpbacked, squinting Seamstresses and make me, too, a beautiful Princess. With a gown sewn by…well, by the poor wenches too old or ugly to catch the Godmother’s eye.


Rated PG. Contains sexual situations and, unrelated, the loss of innocence.

Ah, the stories behind the stories, how I like this subgenre.  Foolish me, I never even wondered where the Fairy Godmother got the goods!
