Peter Capaldi has taken the stage, and according to my son (a geek’s geek), it’s all gonna be okay.
I’ll have to wait to find out because I’m not caught up yet. I know – heresy! But I only sew to stuff I’ve already watched so I get behind easily (and I’m currently watching a certain kilted Scotsman).
Being as FABRIC is the thing we use most, I thought it might be good to spend a moment looking at the good chap’s costume. I LOVE the red lining of the coat! It’s like an unexpected crazy back to a quilt. I can’t say I’m keen on the sweater vest as it reminds me a bit of my granddad. And I have a soft spot for a nice pair of Doc Martens….
Ha – I went searching for an image of Docs and I might just have to buy these… the tops are needlepoint tapestry – perfect for a British born fiber geek like me!
In honor of the new Who, I’m giving away TWO pairs of patterns – you’ll get both the police Box and the Bad Guy. US peeps, I’ll send you the hard copies, international folks, I’ll email you the PDF versions.
Leave me a comment, and tell me who’s your favorite Doctor, and how you’d dress him if you were in charge of the costume department! Winners drawn on Monday Sept 1 via random number.
(I still have a soft spot for my first doctor, Tom Baker, and knitted a scarf like his for my son’s dad when we were courting!)
BTW – Did you join my mailing list yet? Do it here. I’m dreaming up groovy exclusive stuff for you!
