Susan Foreman Cosplay Breakdown: Doctor Who, An Unearthly Child: Poplin Raincoat

Susan’s long-sleeved overcoat is likely a light yellow, though I do not have a color reference. Its material appears to be poplin. The notched collar is turned up in the back.


A large flap pocket (not a patch pocket) is on each side of the coat. The pocket flaps do not have a visible fastener, and since velcro did not gain significant use until the late 60s at the earliest, I believe they are unfastened.


The coat is button-up, with five half-sphere shank buttons the same color as the coat in a single row. I guess that the final button is positioned 12 inches above the coat length.


The following gif is all the screentime this coat gets. The raincoat ends just above her wool school dress and has a slit on either side.
