Is it in any way historically accurate? No. So I decided to pair it with a brand new glittering organza skirt. The skirt turned out very princess worthy, and shed glitter ALL OVER my sewing room. I am storing it in a trash bag because this skirt is a glitter bomb, I'm sure I left a trail of silver glitter in the snow! The white cloak is one of the oldest costume pieces I have and was made for me by my wonderful mother back when I was a tween (for an Arwen Halloween costume). What could be better than a fully lined crushed velvet cloak?!
I had originally wanted to post photos of this wintry costume for Christmas Eve, but it hadn't snowed in a while and I knew I wanted photos in the snow! It snowed on Christmas day, and then again that night, meaning Saturday was perfectly winter wonderland worthy. I can't say this ensemble kept me particularly warm (I'd need a flannel petticoat and nice mitts for that to be true!) but it sure was fun prancing around in the snow despite the cold!
I hope you all have had a lovely holiday, I am looking forward to many things in the coming new year, including lots of sewing projects of course! I have been using my time off to sketch and plan my next few projects and can't wait to get started, except that I have promised myself I will clean my sewing room before I start anything new....It may take me a while to clean up the glitter from this skirt!
