Blacksmith fashion

Alice's Fashion and Welding Blog
This is an interesting blog.  Alice is doing her dissertation with the title:  "Women Blacksmiths: a study of how fashion can save them from sexual exploitation" 
As it suggests, Alice is searching for, and designing, attire for women blacksmiths to wear at work.  She hopes to create a garment that is both protective but flattering that is not exploitative.   
In one post there is an outfit that she has designed that I would love to wear at the forge or not.  

Also, here is a link to a sixteen year old woman blacksmith farrier that you may find interesting:

I found it on Alice's blog.
