10th Doctor suit tutorials are up and running!

Our 10th Doctor suit tutorials are up and running! 

We've uploaded both the brown and blue suit tutorials to our 10th Doctor suit blog, where you can read through the tutorial online as an instructional blog and/or download a PDF. 

Those of you who don't know much about tailoring needn't worry; our tutorials are extremely thorough, and each tutorial has about 400 photos and diagrams as we walk you through every step of the process! Plus, we've recommended several books for reference and additional reading.

We've also expanded our suit analyses a bit, with a few additional notes and examples here and there, and an examination of a pair of authentic GAP trousers, so be sure to give it another read-through!

10th Doctor suit pattern now shipping!

Our 10th Doctor suit pattern is now shipping!

Thank you, everybody who pre-ordered!

It includes both the jacket AND trousers in sizes 34-50 and can be used to make both the brown and blue suits!

This pattern has been in the works for a long time, and we're excited to finally release it! 

We spent over a year researching, analyzing, experimenting, drafting, and putting this pattern together (plus several weeks on the tutorials). Even just the research involved sifting through an average of 3,000 screencaps per episode! All so we could make sure our replica suit was as accurate in its construction as possible, and so yours could be, too. 

You can also order the pattern from our Etsy shop, if you prefer:


We'll be posting photos of our finished blue suit soon, so stay tuned!

10th Doctor blue suit progress

My 10th Doctor blue suit is almost finished!

The trousers turned out really well, if I say so myself:

The jacket's been slow going because I've been sort of burned out with all this tailoring lately and have had lots of other things clamoring for my attention, but it's been going well nevertheless!

I'm pleased with the roll and drape of the lapels; I pulled my padstitches a bit tighter this time and tried a different pressing/steaming technique. 

Here's the jacket with the sleeves (plus sleeve heads and shoulder pads) and undercollar attached.

As with the brown suit, here's a peek at the front facing/lining assembly:

(The lining is actually more of a medieval or royal blue, but the flash makes it look more purple-y in photos.)

Aaaaand here's the jacket basically finished, except for the buttons/buttonholes and a good pressing! Also, check out how radically different Magnoli's replica fabric looks with and without flash:

Sewing pattern and tutorial coming VERY soon!
