: My Dear Miss Marcia,
: I do believe I owe you an apology! I regret that unfortunate outburst of mine. It was but the result of that statement which you made - 'a bit more decorum'. To accuse one of such high breeding to have 'a bit more decorum' was a trifle ill-advised if you did not wish any repercussions! However, I apologise for that show of bad taste, in drawing such attention to my genteel upbringing - perhaps it WAS just a trifle OTT!
: You are indeed correct, Miss! Good, bleached calico is surely the best and most practical of costume for our drab (beg pardon!) *rural* little community! In an environment such as ours, where it pays not to have to worry about getting dirty, through chasing fool dogs and cats, interacting with characters such as Simon Girty, canoe trips with She-Who-Tracks, mixing wattle and daub, etc., the sooner they invent denim dungarees the better, that's all I can say!
: Having said that - have I shown you my latest little creation? The most exquisite quasi-denim (well, they haven't invented the real stuff yet!) pinafore, with contrasting red gingham apron? You really must come into my little establishment, where I can stitch you up will all manner of garments suitable a la kitchen! I have brown serges to hide your fuu-uuudge drips, green lawn to wear at your next 'Mint Dewlap' party and I have the most 'out of this world' purple 'seer' sucker that would be just tickety boo for Miss Sassy!! Yes - do pop over to my little establishment, where I would be happy to take you through my clothes! We shall also partake of a little Earl Grey and a selection of petit gateaux, with 'fondant' icing, just for you!
: Oh yes, Miss - AIN'T NOBODY - beg pardon! None shall accuse our little community of being tired and shabby! Not if I can help it!! I have bedding to aid the tired and the latest in buckskin fashions to assist the shabby! This little village is going to have 'eclat' if it kills me! Coco Chanel - eat your heart out!!
: I remain, your gracious amie,

My Dear Miss Katie,
Well, now! That's more like it! I'm glad you've realized the error of your ways, dearie. It just doesn't do to be high and mighty around these parts...too many opportunities to bring one crashing down, doncha know.
I would love to come by your shop and check out your newest creations. Quasi-denim sounds like just the ticket for some of the dirty work that often needs doin' around our little village. And I am MOST interested in your brown serge...do you have a bolt of this in a nice Chocolate-with-Walnuts shade? If so, we can definitely do some business. The green lawn sounds perfectly lovely, as well. When would be a good time for me to stop by and look at some of your fabric samples?
Now, it's back to my DownHome Kitchen. I'm afraid my latest batch of fuu-uuuuudge is about to boil over, so I need to get stirrin'! TTFN!
Yours Most Graciously,
PS...Old Crone wants to know if you have anything in Dirt Daub Tan?
