Sherlock-inspired Ulster Coat

Added Jan 4, 2016

by DanaRose84

Toronto, Canada






This coat was very much inspired by Sherlock’s Belstaff Ulster coat. My favorite details are the pleating in the back, the gorgeous collar and the extra pockets.

I used three different patterns to get the look I wanted, including Burda’s Navy Peacoat (for the shape of the collar and lapel peak). The main pattern I used was Vogue V8626. I designed my own pockets and back belt.

More construction information is available on my blog with even more details to come. The coat is fully canvased, and interlined throughout for warmth.

Material Notes

Wool, horsehair canvas, bemberg lining and lambswool interlining.




Garment Type
Classic, Victorian, Steampunk
