Description

We decided to go to Perth for Oz Comic-Con the weekend just gone. One day we’d already planned to wear our Merlin costumes (my Morgana is in my studio), but needed a costume for the other day. So I made my third Doctor Who companion costume – Oswin Oswald. I’ve previously done Donna Noble (Fires of Pompeii in my studio) and Amy Pond. The second photo is the original costume.

This was a quick & easy sew. I do wish it didn’t cling right across my tummy, but that’s what you get with stretch fabrics and this style of dress. It’s not something I’d wear outside of the costume, but that’s just because it isn’t my style. It’s most definitely wearable for everyday if I chose!

The dress is view B of McCalls 6612, with the sleeves from view A. Fabric is some red interlock from Spotlight. It’s quite thick fabric and I wouldn’t be comfortable in it on a hot day.

    Many thanks for your understanding. I quite appreciate your suggestion/clue on choice of fabric for the dress too. I’d definitely bear that in mind especially since I plan on going fabric shopping tomorrow afternoon xxx.

    I just wonder why you wouldn’t wear this dress on a normal day! A dress I sooooo admire on you b4 I read you description! You inspired me with this dress that big can be beautiful. I was just looking at you in the dress and thinking I should make one too. I will definitely look at you twice on the street if you wear this dress and mind you, with admiration and envy. Girl, you are hot in this red piece man.

      Thanks!

      I have actually worn it since I posted it, and I was more comfortable in it than I had been at first.

      Glad I’ve inspired you, you should definitely make one!

      Will definitely make one this summer. I was trying to reply your message but mistakenly pressed a wrong button which ended up tagging your message tome as inappropriate. II’m really sorry about that. I tried to undo it without success and am not sure about the implication of that. Soo sorry.

      No worries! I’ve accidentally done that to people too. The buttons are too close together and you can’t undo it. If you’re going to make the dress for summer, find a nice light knit fabric. Mine HAD to be red, and the only red I could find was interlock. It is thick and VERY warm, so this is most definitely an autumn/winter dress for me!

    Took me a minute to get souffle girl. It has been too long since the last season I guess. Great job on the copy!

      Thanks!

      I wasn’t sure people would recognise who I was, since she’s such a new companion, but several people did!

      Thank you!

      If you get the chance, definitely take your son to a con. We go to them quite often, and always in costume. It’s much more fun in costume!

      There was a girl in that Dalek! Her dad & uncle built it for her, and she can walk herself around in it like a Flintstones car. It was very impressive.
