Thank you for all the love for The Coat, the weather hasn't been cold enough to wear it, but I've no doubt that will change soon.
As mentioned in The Coat post, I made it while watching Doctor Who. I'd stopped watching Doctor Who after David Tennant, because that last episode nearly finished me - and all I can say is "what an idiot was I?"!! It turns out I am stupidly excited about Jodie Whittaker being the new Doctor, so I've watched all of Matt Smith, and one and a bit series of Peter Capaldi.
And I don't know why, maybe winter coat making madness, but I decided I needed a Doctor Who themed dress. A bit of googling found this fabulous exploding Tardis fabric, which is based on a Vincent Van Gogh painting from an episode called "The Pandorica Opens".
And, really, what's not to love about a dress with exploding Tardis's on it! The dress itself is the good old By Hand London Anna bodice, which is perfect for not breaking up a print, with a gathered skirt. And after making The Coat, it felt like this dress took about 5 minutes to sew! (It was really a day and a bit).
