Historical Sew Fortnightly (or, er, Monthly)
Over at the Dreamstress website (who does amazing work and in-depth specific research), Ms. Oakes has been hosting what she calls a 'historical sew fortnightly'. It is a historical sewing challenge in which, every other week, a new theme is declared and you have two weeks to finish it.
This year, there has been some debate as to whether or not the Historical Sew Fortnightly will continue, it being a vast amount of work to the dear soul who hosts it.
HOWEVER, it has been announced that the Historical Sew Fortnightly will continue, but the title will be changed to 'Historical Sew Monthly', as the challenges will be once a month, giving one more time to complete each challenge.
Obviously, I could have directed you to her website instead of telling you all this myself, but as you can see, I am just a little excited about it. This will be my first year participating, and I'm hoping to branch out and make more interesting clothing items since I am nearly out of the 'completing my first undergarments' realm. Just that has taken forever, since I can't seem to buck up and just buy all the muslin I needed at once.
