TARDIS sign button badge // made by me - headband // Kellie Falconer Design
I started with my basic Walk in the Woods skirt pattern, but omitted the sclupted waistband, as the TARDIS really doesn't have any curved lines. Really amazing pockets seemed in order for a TARDIS skirt (bigger on the inside!), and what could fit that order better than these beauties? Plenty of room for your sonic screwdriver, nerdy specs, and anything else you might need on your next intergalactic adventure! Take notice, Donna...
I then appliquéd the windowpane design on the pocket band and created a custom Police Public Call Box sign button badge. I'll probably make another with a black background and the words Police Public Call Box in white - all in good time!
I wanted the skirt to be simple enough that it could be styled in a variety of ways, not just DW inspired. The buttons allow the nerdy theme to get vamped up a bit, but allow the skirt to be worn for many different occasions as well. (The buttons can also be transferred to a bag or jacket when the mood strikes, as well!) If I were going for a full blown theme skirt, I would probably have made the waistband black and embroidered or appliquéd the Police Box text there. Wouldn't that be awesome? ;D
Styling this skirt is so much fun... TARDIS blue goes with so many other colors.
And my rose headband, besides being a staple accessory of mine, seemed fitting for this particular outfit. ♥
The Doctor Who week was so much fun! You were all fantastic. And you know what?
So was I;D
