Description

A variation on the ‘Sith Coat’ that I have made a few of. Made the front more cut-away and made the scarf/ collar section longer. Wool.
All French or covered seams. Self drafted pattern. Wool pants, t-shirt, gloves and leather cowl all made by me. Now, if I only knew how to make boots!

    Oh, now it hit me. It reminds me of a video game character’s outfit.

    Reminds me of…. something. But it’s not coming to the top of my head, haha.

    This is so cool! I could see it being worn by the lead character in some dark sci fi/action flick a la the matrix or blade runner.

    That’s a great coat. Very classic! Love the color and cowl neck.

    WOw… I’d love to see the people who buy your stuff all together at some point, wouldn’t that be the most amazing photo shoot?? I have to ask, which blocks (author, book) do you use for your men’s pattern cutting? I have Winnifred Aldrich, who is a pain in the butt for fitting…

      Anne, I use the Winnifred Alderich. This is a variation on the standard lab coat….major variation! It’s interesting because he uses Large as standard, not Medium. Large fits me perfectly so no problems.
      As for the photo shoot- indeed!

      Thanks, I am hoping to find someone who does better trouser blocks, but for now it looks like I am stuck with Winnie. You do well with it though! Keep it up! :D

      MartinK (here) uses the Müller&Sohn system. It is German- perhaps they have English version? Worth a try.

    What to say? Perfectly urbandon. Do you prefer wool as a " typical" australian fabric? If I could I would make shoes, too. And knittng stockings, than I would have a totally selfmade outfit. Making hats is also a wish.

      Thanks Martin, I do love wool as it is as close to a true sustainable (natural) product as you can get. Yes, there is environmental concern but still ranks high. True ‘sustainable’ fabric could be argued till the sheep come home.
      Boots? Yes. Knitting? Yes!!!
