I’d intended to go to the yearly 19th century ice skating meeting, in the capital, the first week of the new year.
But even though life happened, and I was unable to attend, I still had a vision of how cute my outfit would look. So I made plans for doing a ice skating photoshoot instead.
Well, despite three weeks of daily snow, the ice haven’t settled on the river by my house.
So, no ice skating, but at leas I managed to get a winter shoot of the costume.
Maybe I can go skating next year instead….
I’m wearing: My Suffragett skirt and shirtwaist, 1901s corset, modern jacket, glowes, faux fur scarf and my new fur hat (decorated with feathers and suffraget brosch).
poor little faux fox, out in the cold…

As you might have guess, my main reason for making the fur hat was not to prance it around in my appartment – But to go ice skating in it.
The 19th century group comes togeter every january for some historical ice-skating in the capital, and I had made planes on going.
I didn’t had time to make a whole new outfit, but some accessories to spruce up an old costume was just the right amount of work for the in between christmas nights.
This lovely lady is hanging above my sewing machine, so of course she was my main inspiration for a winter skating look.
But here are som other great ice skating pics.
I love this – so beautiful.
