Just for fun, I decided to make an outfit for Angus so he would also have something to wear when we go out to historical events (I was going to make this for Clockwork Alchemy but circumstances got in the way). 🙂 To this end, I chose a Sherlock Holmes outfit pattern that’s made by McCall’s:
The instructions were very straight-forward with no confusing elements and construction was relatively easy. I used mostly scrap fabric from around the Atelier but I did buy a yard of an Armani wool plaid (expensive but Angus is worth it).
After the basic coat construction, I put it on Angus to make sure there weren’t any fit issues…and there weren’t. 🙂
Now to add the final trim to the coat and make the distinctive deer-stalker hat…more to follow! 🙂
