The Sprightly Tailor

The Sprightly Tailor comes from a collection of Celtic stories collected by Joseph Jacobs. It tells the tale of a tailor who has been commissioned by the Laird (Lord) Macdonald to make a fine pair of breeches called trews. To have a bit of fun at the expense of the tailor, a premium is to be paid if the tailor will sew the trews at night in the ruins of a haunted church.
