Sherlock: Sarah Sawyer

Zoe Telford plays Dr. Sarah Sawyer, coworker and love interested of John Watson. Sarah Arthur the costume designer for Sherlock did a wonderful job at visually defining the character of Sarah Sawyer. To the credit of Sarah Arthur she defines Sawyer's image in only a few scenes and it is reinforced every time.

I loved the very feminine image of Sarah Sawyer, many of the pieces she wears have small details that make the costume designs exceptional. All the skirts worn by Sawyer have a pattern, worn with traditional blouses with small embellishments. What Sarah wears to work is classic with modern designs like a double collar and small pleats at the arms. Sarah’s color palette is mostly earth tones, similar to many of the other characters, and few wear bright colors.

Simple blouse with a double color and pleats at the arms, these small embellishments take this blouse up a notch. Just like the character the blouse is distinct and classic. Worn by a woman who clearly understands who she is and the image she wishes to convey.

Very feminine blouse, three buttons covering the shoulder, puff sleeves, pleats down the front, and with a peasant influence.
