In which it's John Ashton's birthday and we have a present for - well, everyone....

A very, very happy birthday to our (well, my) favorite Psychedelic Fur, John Ashton!

Here's to many more!

Okay, so - would this mean that I'd be the lucky girl who gets to spank the birthday boy?

Maddy: CAROLINE!!!!

Oops. I didn't realize she was drinking diet Coke when I said that.

Did that go out your nose? Sorry....


Maddy just finished a new dress and she decided to take pics along the way and make a little how-to for it.

Here's the link: Granny Dress Tutorial

This is the dress. It's a little hard to see, but it has a double ruffle at the bottom. It's all worked in rectangles, so there's no pattern, but all the measurements are included.

And if there's anything we left out, let us know. Neither of us have ever written out sewing directions before....

Have fun with it - and send pics if you decide to make one! We'd love to see them.


  1. Hitty Bertine is doing cartwheels between going over your tutorial like the frickin' Zapruder film. Even Hitty Rosabelle (not normally one given to outward expressions of excitement) is all chattery and hyper. Sheesh. I have a feeling they'll be taking over my sewing room for a bit. I'll let you know how it goes and we'll post pictures! Thanks for this!

    And uh... unfortunate about the diet Coke. Funny. But unfortunate. :)
