I briefly considered stealing @oswaldcosplay 's idea again just for a laugh but then I decided to go with the counterpart instead 😎😁 Here comes the alternative TZI outfit featuring the Miss Patina Wiltshire coat in action. Excuse my pained face here. It seems I've suddenly developed hayfever 😒 Question time: Which outfit do you think suits Clara more? The All Saints/Claudie Pierlot combination or the Miss Patina coat?
@raindreamm and I went as Thirteen and Clara. This was my first attempt at a Waitress Clara dress and disaster ensued. I was trying to Frankenstein patterns together and draft my own for the first time, I didn’t have time to make a mock-up, and my sewing machine quite literally exploded one night while working. Started smoking and everything - we had to put it outside. After that everything had to be hand sewed. Still though, it was my first try and Jenna Coleman complimented my efforts twice, so I was happy even though it had to be held together with safety pins on the day.
A new family member has arrived: The Miss Patina Wiltshire coat. I admit, it's a rather obscure item because, like the UO playsuit, it was never actually featured on screen. At least one scene for The Zygon Invasion was filmed with it and I assume they had planned to put Clara and Bonnie in different outfits (until they figured it would be too obvious). Anyway, because I think it's a gorgeous item, I had to have it 😂
The coat itself is so, so, SO soft. Extremely soft. Small kitten kind of soft. As for the size, it's quite hard to tell. I bought a size L and it looks oversized but fine on me. The catalogue image with the model also looks oversized and I'm assuming she wore a smaller size, so I guess the sizes don't vary all that much. Thank you @ravenhairedclara for the amazing coat 😍
super pleased with how this dress turned out 💙 it even has a POCKET. I’ve made dresses with this pattern twice before but was too scared to attempt putting in the pocket, but this time I did it ✨
