Piece by Piece

What happens when a weaver creates beautiful fabric and then sews a dress she hopes will bring income to feed and clothe her children? A callous shopkeeper dismisses her work as frivolous and unmarketable. So, piece by piece she dismantles the garment trying to please him.

But, this is a fairy tale and, as such, there is the happiest of endings woven with the sweetness of a summer's day and softness of a pony's nose.
