Looking good. Are you hand stitching the trim on, or using a machine?
We'll see. I thought I saw saw shots of the Doctor in his purple coat filming his last scenes. Although, those could have been false. I did notice in the poster, it looks like the same vest with different buttons now. Why they would change the buttons I don't know. Speaking of, I noticed buttons on the trim of the front of the coat. Does anyone have any decent shots of those?And with a little luck we're also working on the first costume Capaldi will wear.
I made the coat and the hat, my Clara made the waistcoat for me since she finished her costume before I got to it. Trousers, shirt and tie were purchased.By the way, looks great man! Did you make the whole thing or just the coat?
It was about one solid day of work.That looks like a lot of work. I've never used buckram before, does it have the flexibility to make the dent in the crown?
Yes, but I used narrower trim than you did (I think 10mm - see earlier in the thread). I also consciously left off the top waistcoat pocket entirely in the interest of time. Probably going to end up remaking the whole thing.Did you end up adding the trim to the pockets on the vest? I'm pretty sure the trim I got at 1/2" might be a little too big now seeing it on. Made it look HUGE on the vest pockets. I opted not to add it, but now it's starting to bug me...
This is the best image I have of the buttons on the coat. They appear to be a dished metal. I looked high and low and couldn't find anything, so I used standard plastic buttons.I noticed buttons on the trim of the front of the coat. Does anyone have any decent shots of those?
Hmmm. That's an excellent reference. Do you think those are the same as on the front details? Maybe one or two of those have been damaged, giving the dished look? Time for another treasure hunt / wild goose chase!
