I made the coat of the Eleventh Doctor from Doctor Who.
This one was really tricky to get a fabric that would work for it.
I was happy to find a small tweed patterned fabric at Joann. It might be easier to make the plum colored version of the coat, actually.
I used Simplicity pattern 8111.
For the other two Doctor Who coats I made, I added pockets. I didn't add pockets on this one, because the fabric was thick and hard to get the pattern to match up. It has tabs to looks like pockets, and one of them is too low and needs to be adjusted.
I DID add patches on the sleeves!
I think it's cute.
I really liked this coat and its fit. I may make the pattern in some other colors as well.
It just sort of flares gently at the bottom, and I love it.
Here is a group picture of the Tenth Doctor, the Eleventh Doctor and the Thirteenth Doctor.
I want to make the rest of their outfits, but right now I am VERY happy with these coats.
