Susan Foreman Cosplay Breakdown: Doctor Who, An Unearthly Child: Wool School Dress

 Susan’s long-sleeved school dress is made of gray wool.

It has a black collar and a black inverted pleat in the center of the skirt.

This 60s pattern clipping shows a center inverted skirt pleat similar to Susan’s, though Susan’s is made of different material from the rest of her dress, and begins lower.

It closes in the back with a zipper.

I am not certain, but it loos like the zipper may be positioned inside of a back pleat. The zipper (and possible pleat) end a few inches below her waist.

Four belt loops of the same material as the dress hold a black sash tied in the front.

In the aired pilot her sash was tied firmly, but I prefer the loosely-tied look in the unaired pilot.

The collar, sash, and inner pleat material are all of a smoother, shinier material than wool.
