Hello!
I've spent the last four or five days looking for the Tenth Doctor's blue on brown pinstripe suit material, and have yet to find any. I plan on going to Britex when I get home, but I'd like to know if anyone has found it online recently, or can point me in the right direction?

It doesn't have to be suitable for a suit, excuse my unintentional pun, since I'm using it for a Doctor Who related project, but it's not making a suit.

I don't mind if the stripes are larger, or if the brown is off. I'm just not coming up with anything similar so I thought I'd call on the Craftster community for some help.

For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, here are some wallpapers that show the suit fairly well from the BBC site:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/medialibrary/s2/images/1024/s2_01_wal_10.jpg?size=1024&promo=/doctorwho/medialibrary/s2/images/main-promo/s2_01_wal_10.jpg&purpose=Computer%20wallpaper&summary=Ready%20for%20adventure.&info=&tag_file_id=s2_01_wal_11
http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/medialibrary/s2/images/1024/s2_01_wal_25.jpg?size=1024&promo=/doctorwho/medialibrary/s2/images/main-promo/s2_01_wal_25.jpg&purpose=Computer%20wallpaper&summary=Original%20Homepage.&info=&tag_file_id=s2_01_wal_21

The suit itself is brown with light blue pinstripes. That's what I'm looking for, but as I said, it doesn't have to be for a suit. Anything will work, really.
Apparently at one time Jo-Anns had a version called 'potting with turquoise stripe', but doesn't anymore - online or in store, for as much as I can tell. :/

Thanks for reading!

I found some one ebay (just searched brown blue pinstripe fabric) and it came up in 2 auctions...  Its a little expensive though...

It's a little out of my price range right now, but it's a good last resort if I can't find any others. ^^;

Seeing that the brown and light blue is a popular color combo right now, I would look into quilting cottons.

HA! awesome project, and I'm glad I found someone looking for the same thing. Makes me feel a lot less crazy. I totally wanna make this for my son for Halloween, but I might just settle for an easier Pocoyo costume this year Tongue If you DO find the fabric for the suite, DO SHARE!!!

Following up on this... If you haven't found the fabric already, I was browsing Joann's while waiting for someone to cut for me and saw that they have the PERFECT pinstripe suite material for order. Downside is that it's $29.99/yard. But it's there =D
