Please please please help me!!!!!! I want to cosplay as Clara in "Journey to the center of the tardis", but I can't find a dress anywhere! They no longer sell the one she wore (Vaudeville and Burlesque fit and flare red), and I can't find anything similar! It doesn't have to come with a collar, I'm fine with adding one on myself!
The biggest thing about her dress is the fact that the material that Urban Outfitters/Vaudeville + Burlesque used for the dress is very unique - it’s a sequin print, but there are no sequins on the fabric. Another difficulty is that the cut of the dress is also very Fall/Winter 2012, whereas anything similar made for Spring/Summer 2013 has a much wider neckline and a tad bit shorter sleeves.
That being said, if you want as close to SA as possible, I suggest finding some similar fabric from your local fabric store, or even looking on Spoonflower to see if someone has remade the fabric and making the dress yourself. I did find three similar dresses, two solids and one print (though it is nowhere near the same as Clara’s) that have similar cuts. You willhave to add a collar to the dress because a lot of the dresses with Peter Pan collars are black and white, or sleeveless, that I’ve found.
This dress is the Red Ditsy Floral Dress from Dorothy Perkins. It’s 29 USD, and available here.
This dress from ASOS is actually my favourite that I’ve found, though the colour is a bit dark, and it’s only available in a size 10. However the cut of the neckline is much more similar to Clara’s than the DP one. It’s available here for 32.24 USD.
The final option is this ASOS swing dress, available here for 37.33.
