Kapten Doris’ winter coat

The design of this coat was based on original work by head costume designer Kajsa Tosting, SVT Malmö. As her assistant costume designer I worked on eapaulettes, pockets, backside “trail”, sleeves, ribbons, and ornaments.

Kapten Doris (played by Marianne Mörck) is a character that pops up in several of SVT’s children’s TV shows. She’s the sister of Vinterskuggan and is known to operate an U-boat.

Kapten Doris was about to head north to shoot scenes for the shows Sommarskuggan 5 and Sommarlov at a very cold location. She needed a winter coat that was similar in style to the character’s regular clothes.

Materials: Faux fur, ribbons, fabric, buttons, soft plastic sheets, glue, sewing.
