This outfit is a real labour of love.
I cant tell you the hours that have gone into creating this or the vast amount
of detail that I have tried to get into it.
|Ok, where to start? Boots!
These boots are handmade in genuine real leather.
They have a tiny bronze zip up the inside of the leg, this makes them much easier to get on and off, otherwise you would
be spending hours lacing up the tiny eyelets that I hand applied to the front of his boots!
I have used elastic lacing for the boots, this gives him more movement when you are putting his boots on or taking them
off. It also helps him to move his ankles for posing.
I have added a flash of white leather to one side of each heel, just to make the boots a little different to the norm. He
also has chains studded on to the outside of his legs.
The inside of the boots are lined in his tartan fabric.
He has hand knitted sock tops attached to the tops of his boots.
|Then there is his shirt. This is made in a very fine soft cotton lawn fabric. It is a very versatile shirt that will go great with
most outfits. It could be worn by a Georgian gent or a swashbuckling pirate, it goes with the New Romantic era or in this
case it smartens up an outfit from the punk rock era.
It has tiny white buttons on the front and the sleeve cuffs.
The cuffs and the front fasten with tiny invisible press studs.
The shirt fastens with a tie/cravat collar.
He has long shirt tails to wear either in or outside of his outfit.
The back shoulder has a tiny top stitched pleat to define the shape of his shoulders.
|The kilt is made in a fine, crisp, cotton lawn fabric with a tartan weave in exactly the right scale for his kilt.
It is has tiny permanent pleats all around the back, these have all been top stitched in place.
The fastenings are tiny press studs in the waistband and little bronze metal buckles with leather straps at his right hip.
There is a detachable fun fur sporran, with studs and chains as you would expect, it also has a small heart shaped
bronze padlock fastening.
|He has a royal blue waistcoat.
This is made in a royal blue pure cotton fabric and a red satin fabric for the back. It is fully lined in the red fabric.
The front fastens with tiny invisible press studs and is finished on the outside with tiny colour matched blue buttons.
He has a flash of the union jack flag sewn across his shoulder and going down under his arm revealing the flag
The back has two straps and buckles to adjust and tighten as you wish.
|And so to the jacket. I cant tell you how much I enjoyed making this. I have tried to get as much detail into it as I
could while keeping it all relevant and not too over the top.
The fabric I used is not leather as this would constrict the doll far too much and really restrict the mobility, so I have
used a softer cotton fabric that has a leather looking finish to it. I think it works great, giving the jacket that perfect
age worn leather look.
The jacket is fully lined in the red satin fabric from the waistcoat. It has two studded patch pockets on the front, a
fold down collar that sits nice and flat and can be worn either up or down.
The sleeves are both very different, one has studs and chains, these are studded and sewn into loops on either
side of the right arm. The left arm has two ripped and torn slashes across the elbow revealing the tartan fabric insert
beneath, then above that there are two sewn on patch badges, the St Georges flag of England and the Union Jack
flag of Great Britain.
|The cuffs of the jacket have tiny non-working zip closures.
There is a real leather belt attached with studded belt loops, the belt
has hand applied eyelets all the way round and finishes at the front
with a small bronze buckle.
The back of the jacket has everything you would expect in a leather
punk jacket. It has studs right across the back of the shoulders and
fully studded separate epaulets.
The back panel itself is made up of a printed punk rock image and
tartan fabric surround, all studded.
There are leather loops studded into the jacket with rings and chains
attached. From the top centre loop hangs a tiny metal feather.
On the front of the jacket he has two MINUTE little button badges, both
with Sex Pistols insignias.
