Guess who? Coastal Cargos (Blank Slate Patterns) & Goodall Cardigan (Petit a Petit)

Week two of Project Run and Play is starting Monday, I'm looking forward to see the designer results! The new theme: a cosplay inspired outfit. So guess who?

Yes! Doctor Who! The tenth Doctor to be more precize. I did an outfit inspired by Ten's blue suit with the baggy pants, converse sneakers and red tie. Oh and let's not forgot his sonic screwdriver.

To incorporate this look in a wearable outfit I used the Coastal Cargos by Blanks Slate Patterns, as part of my monthly Go To Patterns sew & show. You can find the pattern over at the Go To Patterns shop (affiliate links). I made some changes to the pattern, omitting the cargo pockets and adding a full elastic waistband. An easy adjustment for days you want a quick sew, or make a pair of pants the kids can easily take off themselves (thinking gymclass here).

These pants have just the right amount of bagginess to them and the stripes on the sideseams give it just that little bit extra. This is the second pair I made (take a look at this Stylo post to see my first version) and I think it's the perfect pair of pants for spring and summer when using nice cottons. The chambray fabric I used here is by Robert Kaufman.

Instead of doing a blazer I made the free Goodall Cardigan pattern (Petit a Petit patterns) in the same chambray as the cargo pants. Since the cardigan pattern is loose fitting I didn't even have to size up.

  6. I love this outfit! When I told my husband the theme for Project Run and Play this week, he asked if I was going to do Dr. Who for my son. I said no, since I was already working on something. But maybe someday I will, every Halloween my husband asks the same thing. :)
