Tacky Christmas Sweater #7: "Inciting a riot is easier than you think"

Share This Post

Megan and Aimee holiday sweaters Here’s one for you history buffs: the last surviving garments made by Donna Karanina, the Mad Seamstress of St. Petersburg. These sweaters caused a riot when they were debuted in Moscow in 1622, during which the city was burned to the ground. Karanina fled with them to the more artistically enlightened city of Amsterdam, where upon their unveiling she was stoned and drawn and quartered before being burned at the stake. Her ashes were then shot, because, well, the Dutch really, REALLY hated these sweaters. Oh, how far we’ve come. Still, extra points to both you guys for bravery!
