Some people wondered about the pattern. I didn’t really have one, I sketched it and drew directly on test fabric and draped it from there. These are some progress pics, from original, to ugly insides, to final product. The original Tumblr post about The Coat is this one here, So, I needed a coat…
The rest of the pattern pieces and notes are on my LiveJournal - A Study in Coat - Pattern Sketches and Notes, for all those interested. Not for the faint hearted - some experience adjusting and drafting would be helpful, or just go at it with a test piece first in cheap fabric. You can see all previous posts on the topic by using the tag ‘How to Make’ on my LJ.

Sarah Arthur (Costume designer for Sherlock) on the robe: Our budget was very tight and the [robe] I wanted was thousands. I had to find a similar alternative. If money had been no object, I had my eye on a lovely cashmere striped one. But when you’ve got budgets to stick by, you have to control yourself a bit.

Sarah Arthur (Costume designer for Sherlock) on the shirt: Benedict is very slim - we needed that silhouette, so that if he was sitting in the flat, I didn’t want loads of fabric bulging out. Those Dolce shirts just suited his body.
