Oxford outfit for Caitriona

I am not exactly sure why I decided to call this whole outfit “Oxford”. Perhaps, because that’s the name of the coat. I have made it by reducing and adjusting the Oxford Coat pattern by Liberty Jane. It is not lined except for the hood (but I will fully line it next time I make it – it’s just calling for lining!). The jeans are my own pattern as are both scarves. The handbag is adjusted from a DB Details Club pattern for Tonner dolls. And a turtle neck is also adjusted from one of the numerous t-shirt patterns for AG dolls. The model is my gorgeous Caitriona – A Girl for All Time Lydia.

View from the back. When I was making it I didn’t realise just how many snaps I would have to sew on! I stubbornly do not use velcro. Next time I will sew it differently in order to avoid so many snaps.

  1. This is a great outfit and looks lovely on Caitriona, the fabric of the coat is perfect for this style. She looks cosy and warm but also trendy 🙂

  2. Fabulous outfit! I love the detailing in each piece. The fabric of the coat reminds me of a suit I had in high school and loved so much – it was sad to grow out of it.

    I know this is your dear Caitriona, but in this outfit she reminds me a lot of the main character, Diana, from the book Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. Partially because she was a New College, Oxford alumna. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Xyra! http://www.swish-swirl.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_rose.gif My precious Caitriona is not offended! She often plays other roles and does a lot of time-travelling!! I had to Google the book. It sounds very interesting. Would it be suitable for a 12-year-old? I think we might give it a try, especially, since it seems to be taking place in the town where we live – Oxford!! http://www.swish-swirl.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_good.gif
