The Doctor: Guess what I've got Donna.
[Pulls out a large remote device from his overcoat]
How did they fit in there?
They're bigger on the inside.
So the main thought with this ensemble was pockets...lots of them. Now I liked the thought of making a female sherlock victorian outfit.
But then I like pinstripes...and I was looking at perhaps a female tenth doctor victorian outfit.
For all of them I'll need the right layers...and the right fabrics. I don't want to be perspiring all day. lol! Practicality is key.
I'll need bustle, petticoat, stays, chemise, foundation skirt, bodice and a swagged apron. Now for calculating the cost. The bustle, chemise and petticoat I can make from my stash. The foundation skirt, 'apron' and bodice (with lining, boning etc.) Looking at the yardages for the proper patterns. I'll probably need about 3-4 meters for the skirt (which I'll also use as the lining fabric), 3 for the bodice and apron? Not sure how much boning needed?
Anyway...the game, is on. ;)
