The current Historical Sew Fortnightly challenge is Literature. I have been away from internet access for a week, so was only able to look at what had been posted today. I was looking forward to seeing what had been made for this challenge, but sadly there wasn't much take-up for it. However I like to think of it as quality, not quantity!
Mouse Borg took an Edgar Allan Poe story as her inspiration, and made the cravat which the hero uses to extricate himself from a tricky situation, while Quinn turned a rather uninviting and very 1980s evening dress into a much nicer 1925 beaded dress, inspired by The Great Gatsby.
