Description
This is Mach's uniform, to go with Alice for the ball. It consists of a calf-length trench coat and high collar, plus matching trousers. I've never made anything like this before and I'm not completely happy with how it hangs. It's fully lined, apart from the top, where I managed to make the neck too big, and had to adjust. That was really disapointing, as I had the collar attached between the outside and lining perfectly before that :(

The insignia is hand embroidered, which took many hours, sometimes at my desk at work during lunch times. The bias around it wasn't terribly tidy, but it looks okay in the photos. I printed an image onto transfer paper and then embroidered over the top, which worked really well.

The trousers were patterned on a pair of jeans, but didn't fit properly.
