The Masters Coat 3 by =FrockTarts on deviantART

A female version of the velvet coat worn by Anthony Ainley in the  Doctor Who series as "The Master".  Black velveteen. Skirt instead of pants. All the embroidery on the collar was done by the wonderful Inky, as well as the photography. Self covered buttons, long skirt pleated in the front and back, and a tall stand up collar.( for photos of the original, go here  http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/gallery/master/index.shtml )

The Harlequin Project

So, This has been beating around in my head for a bit, but.
If any of you watch =InKibus you know she designed me this harlequin outfit.  This isn't the first time some one has designed a harlequin outfit for me though. My good friend ~Grimawormtongue designed one for me a few years ago for Halloween. I ended up not sewing it because I found out I had a back curve (and the outfit involved a corset), and have been putting it off ever since. Well, now I know I can safely wear a corset no problem, so there is no reason I couldn't get started on that on again. But that had me thinking. Anyone who knows me, know I love Harlequins. Mimes, and Jester designs (But, for the record, I am NOT fond of the bozo the clown look).
So... I want to start a protect, "The Harlequin Project". What would it involve?
Well, I love see people different takes on everything, so. Here's my thoughts on what I'd love to try and do.
You design a Harlequin/jester/mime outfit, and I will attempt to bring it to life. :D
*Not Immediately* Commission take first dibs on what time I have over what I want to do, and my time *is* sadly limited. So, it might take me a bit to get around to a particular design. Still, I'm in no rush, I see this as a constantly on going project.
A few thing I ask though, if you do want to design something.
1) I don't mind getting a little saucy, but please, no stripper/g-string designs. I would not be comfortable sewing or wearing something like that. otherwise it can be anything. Steampunk, Goth, Medieval, Punk, flapper, so long as it's in a Harlequin, Jester or Mime theme.
2)You can feel free to use pics of the finished outfit, if you want, to put it on say a profile or resume. You designed it. ;)
This is still in the tenitve stage, but I'd love to hear feedback.

Two shirts done for a trad for winneganfake 

Made from Folkwear pattern 116 Russian and Ukrainian shirt... I did a wee bit of modifying on them though.. I made the collor taller, took about four inchs out of the puff on the sleaves, made the whloe thing longer, and made the side panles a bit large... I really think the "large" size sould be a bit larger myself, bro found that size a bit tight and he isn't a huge guy.  I really need to do a review on tha pattern.
