Handfasting Outfit with a nod to Doctor Who

fabric land Dr Who inspired sewing project

This has been a bit of a labour of love, as my friends asked me to make their handfasting outfits back in 2019 and there have been a few obstacles since then. I was given pictures of the outfits that they would both like and then worked with various patterns and self-drafting to create the finished items. The groom originally wanted a ‘Dr Who’ Timelord collar, but the bride said no, so I adapted the collar to give a nod to this type of collar. This is based on Butterick History B6609 again with a LOT of alterations – the main fabric is a beautiful white on white brocade, the collar on the waistcoat is a stretch blue velour and the Bride’s dress was made from this.
