Happy holidays to everyone!
A charming skating costume with the new full bolero coat with epaulet trimmings of heavy braid. The tunic, which is graduated upwards at the back, shows a full skirt, foot-free in length, trimmed with narrow bands of fur. The sleeve of this costume, which would do equally well for walking, is particularly neat. Rolled velvet could be substituted for fur on the skirt.
You’d certainly be cosy, but I can’t imagine it would be easy to skate in!
And, as an extra bonus, here is a page of ‘Continental Sweetmeat’ recipes from the same magazine for your delectation. If you do make one of these recipes please report back!
