Challenge # 11: The politics of fashion
I freely admit that I slacked off on this one. I've been spending most of this last fortnight working on a bustle dress for my mother to wear to an upcoming event, and that took priority.
I decided to make a half-cockade in suffragette colors. There won't be a hat to go with it any time soon, as I'm not terribly interested in the fashions between 1890 and 1919. But it went together quickly and painlessly.
The Challenge: The politics of fashion
