handholding

(no subject)

Just a quick question ...

Anyone who's made a Professor Snape movie version costume, what pattern did you use for the frock coat (not the billowy robe part!)?

I've used Butterick's priest costume pattern before, only because it gives the back that nice layered effect with the ... whatever-you-call-them ... pleats? (gods, I am so not able to use sewing jargon!) But the sleeves are those ugly curve-cut L shape sleeves. I'm going to take a sleeve from another pattern this time, ones that are straight, to make those infamous form fitting button-a-holic sleeves.

I was just wondering if anyone found THE perfect Snape pattern, that required little to no alterations? Or any better suggestions on how to make it?

Thanks!
