puppetpusher says: I used this fabric to pull together the theme of my TARDIS motor scooter, and had Cheeky Seats make a set cover out of it! It really does look amazing. I will say that in the Kona cotton, it seems a bit heathered (as in, light and "dusty" kind of faded). And for some strange reason, the color will literally flake right off of the fabric. It has not been treated, washed, or mishandled. Little bits of color just randomly roll up and pill off of it, even if you don't touch it. Unfortunately, that makes the piece ridiculously delicate (I only put the cover on the bike when I'm displaying it, anyway). I don't know if I just got a bad printing, or what, but there wasn't time to do anything about it before I debuted this at a convention. (And I do realize that the issues I've had with the fabric are completely out of control of the artist!) But as I've said... it really does make a statement as a suit, and is instantly recognizable as the Tenth Doctor's duds. Even if it's just on the seat of a little scooter.

patsijean says: I've been interested in this fabric and I will advise that If the colors are not on the Spoonflower map, they probably will not print true. I took out my color map from Spoonflower and thought I would suggest using Hex#4E2B1B or #4F3529. #5C3125 if pretty but a bit lighter that the other two and would not look grey. I would try each color, each with a different name, perhaps the hex #, and go with the one you like best. If the problem can be resolved, I'd love to make a shirt for my husband out of this stripe.

curious...

curiousjoan says: crycket, I'm sorry you're unhappy. I always suggest people get swatches of the fabric before buying a larger amount, since the printing process means the color does not look the same as the screen. That's an important factor in patterns like these especially because the color is not on the Spoonflower color map as an exact match. I'm not sure if there's anything you can do, crycket, although it might be possible to darken the fabric with overdye if you are careful (though this will affect the blue striping, which seems to be much closer in color match than the brown). Because I've received several comments along the same lines, I'll be revising this pattern again to try to get it darker and closer to the original. I will write in the comments here once the revision is uploaded; please send me a message if you have any additional suggestions to add to version 4.0. I will also be contacting Spoonflower about their process and whether they'll be bringing Ultra back, which enabled the colors to get closer to the screen and darker. Thanks!

curiousjoan says: redempress, I'm sorry you are unhappy with the fabric you have; however, I cannot find a record of your purchase and I'm afraid you might be mistaken. Regardless, I always encourage buying swatches (several, if you are unsure of which fabric you want, since the printing process creates slightly different results on each base) before buying a larger amount. This is especially true for designs like this one, which look quite different from screen to fabric -- this is because the image shown is designed for the fabric, not for a digital product.

curiousjoan says: rasaquick, I'm sorry the fabric was not to your liking. The brown is actually a fairly complex one; because I'm trying to match to an existing fabric, the color itself isn't one that is on the Spoonflower color map. I have to use several colors, in layers, to make it print out as closely as possible to the original, which is indeed a more bark brown, with grayer and slightly more dull tones rather than a rich deep brown. I have gone through several iterations to make it the current color (which is closer to the original costume than my first attempt) and I likely will continue to make tweaks and updates as I gain more information. I do always suggest that you buy swatches before you make a larger investment, both to try out the fabric and to try out the print itself. If you have any suggestions on how to make this print closer to the original costume design, I'd love to hear them -- feel free to message me.

rasaquick

rasaquick says: I wanted to blame the dingy "brown" color on the printing part, but I ordered other fabrics with this and the rest were very vibrant. The brown isn't really "dark brown," it's this gross grey/almost black/not quite brown color. However, the blue stripes in it were beautiful and vibrant. After seeing 10th Doctor costumes from fabric bought from other seller's, this fabric just doesn't stack up against the competitors. $18+/yard is a lot of spend on the poor color quality of the "brown."

nissaerith says: Hello there! I also am working on a 10th Doctor cosplay, except instead of a suit I'm planning on making a high-waisted circle skirt and vest in this fabric. Even though it's been stated that either twill or kona cotton would work, would poplin also be a good option? Seeing that twill's out of my price range and kona's a little on the thin side. Thanks!

curiousjoan says: Hi Papi! Unfortunately, I don't have the kind of photos you're looking for (I don't have the original fabric myself and haven't seen anyone's photos of their suits). I can tell you that this is a revision from the photo with the owls, making it closer to the correct tone, and that the Ultra process Spoonflower introduced is also better and ends up darker than their original process allowed. I have revised this design several times as I have gotten more information -- it is as close as I can personally make it, at least for now. I'm sorry I don't have what you're looking for. Swatches might help you decide whether it's the right one for you, if you want to see it in person.

I am currently in the hunt for the perfect fabric and I think this could be it. Are there any pictures of suits made with this fabric(I already saw the owls but think the light is playing tricks on me), or perhaps a comparison shot showing this fabric against the original? Thank so much!

curiousjoan says: I apologize for the confusion, Kimberly, but your purchase was for the physical fabric itself, not a digital copy; express shipping is for a quick turnaround and mailing time, done through and directly from Spoonflower's printing warehouse. I do not distribute my files without a watermark in order to protect my work. If you're interested in licensing this file or any of my designs, we can discuss this in further detail and draw up a contract. Send me a private message if you'd like to continue this discussion.

curiousjoan says: Hi kasterborian! It will depend on how thin/thick or crisp/less crisp you want your suit to be. Either the twill or the Kona cotton will work; the Kona will be slightly on the thin side, but works well; the twill will be crisper but slightly more expensive. Check out Spoonflower's descriptions (follow the "products & pricing" link at the top of the page) for more information on each different fabric base -- that plus your pattern choice should help guide you a bit further.

curiousjoan says: Hi raava! I am sorry I don't have a firm answer for you, since Spoonflower prints and sends the fabric; all I can tell you is that it usually takes a few weeks for them to process orders, at least in my experience. Unfortunately that means you probably won't have it in time for your party :( You can also contact Spoonflower to ask about processing times or the status of your order specifically -- they might have more precise information for you.

curious...

curiousjoan says: Hi ari-sama! Since you're lining it with a slightly stiffer fabric than typical linings go, I'd think that the Kona cotton would work best in your case (and, bonus, it's less expensive). So crazy that your swatches all got lost in the mail :( The only downside to the Kona is that it's a bit thin compared to regular suiting material, but that's offset by the broadcloth, I think. Hope that helps :)

ari-sama

ari-sama says: To be honest I really don't know how I ended up with a commission for the 10th doctor's suit sitting in my lap but I think fabric is kinda important seeing as I kinda need it to make the suit, hahaha. Actually this is a present to a very good cosplay friend who can't afford to shovel money at a $500 suit. He has no idea that I'm making this and I have his measurements from previous projects (this is his dream cosplay). Thing is, the last time I tried to get the base fabric swatches they were lost in the mail (for the 5th time in a row -_-') so I don't know what I should go with??? I need 6 yards and if I don't use it all, well then I have some awesome dress material~! I'll be lining the suit with broadcloth (seeing as it works better than lining in my opinion). Poplin is the most expensive that I can go but I don't know how it compares to the other fabrics...

curious...

curiousjoan says: Hi filmdk! I usually recommend either the Kona cotton or the twill; right now, they will print out differently due to the introduction of the Ultra process for the Kona (which makes a much nicer and probably longer-lasting print). I think the Ultra Kona would be the better pick right now. It's a bit on the thin side for a suit, but sews up nicely, and is one of the cheaper options so a whole suit is not quite as expensive. Apparently the Ultra is out of stock (I'm not sure when they will restock it) so if you'd like to wait, that's the one I'd go for. Otherwise, the retired Kona is pretty good, and the poplin has a crisper hand that is a little more suit-like but is pricier per yard. Your choice! Your best bet would also be to really make sure how much yardage you'll need in total before you get started, and also account for the striping, which will take up a little more fabric so it looks like it's supposed to :)

filmdk says: I am wanting to have a 10th doctor suit made in double extra huge (I'm a big guy). I know I will need to do my measurements and what not to figure out how much I need. What I was wondering is what would be the best material to have it made from? I see their are many choices on the page. Everyone keeps telling me just to buy a brown pinstripe suit but I want the correct colors and no suit I have seen has the blue stripes. Luckily a fellow Whovian led me here. Thanks!

curiousjoan says: I've just measured the latest sample I bought (on 10/9) and it looks like mine has the right pinstripe size and distance. There isn't any reason why yours should be zoomed in, so I'd definitely talk to Spoonflower directly.

curiousjoan says: doctorwhy: I'm not entirely sure, as I think I fixed the dpi issue before your purchase, so it should have been printed accurately. From my controls it looks like it's still set as 600 dpi. I'm sorry it seems to have printed out incorrectly. It might be worth it to ask Spoonflower directly about it, since I've done as much as I can from my end.

curiousjoan says: Hi evil_step-mom! I bet the linen-cotton canvas would work very well for a pencil skirt. And if your pattern says twill as a suggestion, that makes me even more confident. Although I haven't seen the canvas with my own two eyes, the info that Spoonflower gives us makes me fairly sure that, based on the relative weight of the twill, the canvas should work nicely. I think you might have more information than I do right now, since you've seen a sample of the linen-cotton, so I'd trust your gut. :)

Posted about 3 years ago.

curiousjoan says: No problem :) I think the Kona will work well as a skirt, actually. If you're really worried, I bet you could line it to make sure it acts the way you want.

kae907

kae907 says: I want to do a suit jacket and a skirt. Do you think the Kona would be too flimsy for a skirt? Thanks for answering all my questions!

Posted about 3 years ago.

curious...

curiousjoan says: Hi kae907! I'm thinking it will greatly depend on what sort of fem10 look you're going for. If you want a suit, you have a couple of options: the Kona cotton is a tad on the thin side (although the original fabric used was from cotton pants, so it's not super far off), while the poplin will probably get you a closer (crisper) hand due to the increased threadcount. The twill really is too heavy -- or at least was, at the time I tested it originally -- and unfortunately I don't know enough about the linen-cotton canvas to make any kind of pronouncement on it. I think it might be too thick, though, based on the statistics about its weight that Spoonflower gives, which suggest it's nearly as thick as the twill. Because 10's suit is made from a cotton fabric, a screen-accurate look will probably end up being thinner than a standard fine (wool/blend) suit. On the other hand, if you're going for a different type of costume (dress, Victorian, steampunk), then you have a lot more options, and the decision you make will really be based on the kind of final product you're going for. The pants that I made with this fabric worked very well for the con we went to. I used the original basic cotton, which was replaced by the Kona cotton, and it hung pretty well and seemed quite comfortable. I do still find it slightly on the thin side, however, and dearly wish Spoonflower had an in-between-weight cotton that I could tell everyone "this is perfect!"

curious...

curiousjoan says: Hi madhattress, sorry I didn't see your question earlier! I'm not super well-versed in making jeans, but from what I understand, skinny jeans typically are denim with some stretch added (like spandex). The closest thing that Spoonflower would have, in my estimation, is their Organic Cotton Interlock Knit. I'd really suggest buying a swatch first to see how the fabric behaves. It might end up being much closer to leggings. The other one that might be denim-like is the Heavy Cotton Twill or possibly the Linen-Cotton Canvas. It will really depend on what you're looking for in terms of weight (thickness), stretch, and texture. If you're not sure, the best thing to do is order several swatches to compare -- that's what I've done to decide which fabric base will work best for my projects. Hope that helps!

Now that I know at least one person is, I will start to do some research to see how well I can match the colors.

curiousjoan says: Hiya madhattress! When I made suit pants originally, I used the quilting cotton (now replaced by Kona cotton and the additional brushed cotton). It works fairly well but is on the thin side (nice for when you're overheating, but the drape looks a bit off). I tested the twill, but it's really too heavy for the project. The poplin is probably the most appropriate weight and drape; I would use that if you're going for authenticity, or the Kona cotton if you're going for comfort.

curious...

curiousjoan says: Hi and thanks for your questions! I'm always happy to help. When I made my costume, I only made the pants (I was doing the 11's first episode). I ordered 3 yards, which was more than enough. I've had a few customers order 5 yards, which I assume is for an entire suit set; but I can't be sure since I have not done a jacket myself. Your best bet may be to look at similar patterns to see what the typical yardage would be in your size, and go from there. When I made this design for myself, Spoonflower had a much more limited number of fabrics available, and I used what was then called Quilting Cotton, which is a bit on the too-thin side for suiting. The poplin seems like it would work really well and have a more accurate hand and density, but I have not seen it myself. Hope that helps! (If anyone has more experience and can answer these questions more fully, please feel free to chime in!)
