The TARDIS cosplay in action. Not the original top, but this was a tiny bit warmer for the evening time. Thank you all for your previous comments on the design and idea!

Did you know your photo is being used to advertise an online store without credit to you? 

Great dress! I really love it and hate that your image is being exploited.

If you don't make your own patterns, the closest I can think of to this type of skirt is a Poodle Skirt pattern.. Felt gives the best volume, but I used cotton since it was the best color and sewed in super thick interfacing.

As far as styling goes, I tried to do my hair and makeup to have hints of retro without being too antiquated, to be a sort of ode to the several decades the series has been through. I wanted the design to be simple enough to seem "timeless" ;)

Hello! I know, a friend just told me I made it on Tumblr which is KICKASS. If only I had a Tumblr ...

And sure, it's actually pretty simple of a costume. I actually cheated on this version and most of it isn't homemade. The skirt is a costume/poodle skirt pattern. I used a blue linen with very, very heavy interfacing and made an extra thick belt piece to it in black. Then I used iron-on letters for the waist lettering and put white linen on interfacing for the panels and sewed on navy trim to the ends of each. The St. John's ambulance button I made off CafePress and added a cotton black trim around it. I used extra blue fabric to handcraft the bow. The rest of it is from the closet!

Happy Whoing~
