The Dr. Watson Jacket

Have any of you seen the BBC Sherlock?  If you haven't-you should.  It's amazing, especially for someone who has geekish tendencies and loves vocabulary.  But--check out this jacket (on Martin Freeman)

More research tells us this jacket is Haversack and retails for $1170.  Yeah.  A little rich for my blood.  However, definitely worth another look since it almost ruined the last episode for me because I was so preoccupied.

Shall we have another look?

Mmmm, yes. Corduroy collar, right shoulder leather, leather reinforced elbows.  I have to make this jacket.  (Hopefully my husband will wear it right?)

In looking for patterns this is the only one I found was KwikSew3123

It is very basic however, so I may save myself the money and just draft the pattern myself.  And let's not kid.  This jacket won't be ready until at least the fall.

  1. Great Jacket! Check Leko's site, they have several men's jackets. Not sure what size the free download is, but it would give you a base to work with!
