The first challenge in the Historical Sew Fortnightly is ‘Starting Simple’: due midnight, 31 December NZT.
For this challenge eases yourself into it by finishing a project, making a very simple garment, or makeing something you have made before and are familiar with.
When you are done, post a link to your photos or blog post in the comments, or in the event photo album on Facebook (do go check out all the amazing things people made).
What did I make? A sweet, simple, easy dress from 1930 inspired by Gran.
It was a very hard start for me in terms of the circumstances, but a very inspiring start in terms of participation, and the amazing and clever things that were created. It can only get better from here!
