Smile Doctor Who?

Anyone know what pattern and fabric to use for a Doctor Who (Tenth) suit/coat? What about an Eleventh shirt? (Getting fabric from spoonflower)

There are plenty of buy-your-own pre-made suits out there, but I'd really like to try my hand at sewing the set myself. (I have rather odd proportions.)

The originals materials are AWOL, and I haven't been able to find suitable patterns. (Pun not intended)

Help, DW cosplayers? =)

Breaking down the parts:

List of details, pictures, and resources which are helpful for props and colours, but not much in terms of places to buy and patterns:

Pumpkiny's DW Costuming blog. Similar to the LJ, but with more.....Britishness?:

Very much awesome reference for the suit:

Context shot:

There's quite possibly a billion more shots out there, but I'm getting tired of sitting and staring.

Offhandedly, here are two shots of one of the other DW costume pieces I'm looking to recreate:



Yes, it is a Paul Smith shirt. No, I do not have money to buy one.

If anyone can help direct me to patterns and/or stores, I would be eternally grateful.

(Thanks to Kelley for reminding me about the pictures!)

Reference pictures ? (I've seen the show - I just don't memorise costumes unless I'm making them)

Making a real suit is a VERY BIG project. It's a big deal for even very experienced sewers. You might be better off buying something used, but it's a trade-off either way.

Thanks Kelley, I just posted several pictures.

I know it would be difficult, but I want to challenge myself. =)
