Title:
Charlotte Brontë’s Frocks and Shirley’s Queer Textiles
Authors:
Wynne, Deborah
Abstract:
This chapter discusses the role of textiles and fashion in Charlotte Brontë’s novel, Shirley (1849). It argues that Brontë uses sewing and fashion as a way of representing female bonds. This is contrasted with her representations of the 'male' world of the mill-owner.
