One of the first things I made when I started needing pieces to wear to events was a muff.  I even put pockets on the inside to hold small essentials like money or cards.  Very easy to do.

If you can find one (and if you have the strength to walk around with 25 lbs of dense wool covering you from neck to ankles), I recommend a CNR greatcoat. Mine is circa 1940-50, and probably not much different in style from the same type of coat in the Victorian era. The only drawback is that there's usually only a couple of weeks per year in the Maritimes when it's cold enough to justify wearing it (say, -25C). They're certainly designed for the Canadian climate, most likely for hanging off the back of a caboose in Arctic temperatures.
