11th Doctor velvet waistcoat sewing kit

I thought it would be a neat idea to put together an 11th Doctor "velvet waistcoat sewing kit," for those of you interested in making your own.

These are the exact same materials I used for my replica waistcoat, and this "sewing kit" is specifically intended for other DIY types.

It includes the following:

  • A copy of my velvet waistcoat sewing pattern

  • 1 yard of custom-dyed dark purple velvet

  • 1 yard of custom-dyed purple linen

  • 7 yards of black decorative trim (the largest size only needs about 6 yards, so this gives you some extra)

  • A set of 6 black passementerie buttons

The interfacing, lining, and back buckle are left to your personal preference. (I put my recommendations in the sewing tutorial here on the blog.) 

You can order this kit from our Bad Wolf Costumes Etsy shop:
