Headless Headmistress Bloodgood's coat made and sewed by my own hands!
I recently got the doll very cheap in a flea market, it didn't come with the coat, but it wasn't a problem, because I knew that it was a very cheap piece of clothe that could be easy to do, and also because my fiance and I bought Nightmare, the mare, in the same flea market 2 years ago, and very cheap too, so she needed her ride. 🐎
I got the fabric for the coat by buying used clothes in one of those $1 used clothes shops, it was a little difficult to find the right color for the coat, but satisfying at the end.
The lower arms were the most difficult part, I did like five tries to at least make something decent, when I was sewing the details, then I tried to turn one arm backwards only to make it stuck itself, it was a pain! so in my final try, I just glued the lower arm detail just after sewing the victorian detail in the elbow. By the way, I made the stripes on the lower arms by drawing them with a red Sharpie marker on the fabric.
The victorian details on the elbows and neck were a little challenging to do, but I'm pretty satisfied with the final result in the entire coat, I just wish the arms got a little shorter and thinner, anyway.
Thanks to The ToyBox Philosopher blog for its Headmistress Bloodgood doll review, where I got the references I needed to make the coat for my doll, she now looks complete and ready to rule the school with an iron fist! 👊
