S-Mart Smock - Ash Williams' S-Mart Smock From Army of Darkness

I’m a couple of days away from it being ready for a full cosplay (I still have to make my medieval mechanical hand and S-Mart ID and pocket protector), but I thought I would submit my S-Mart smock in the Sew Warm contest. I did have to sew and another layer of cloth would make you warm, so here it is.

I had never seen an Evil Dead cosplay where Ash was in his S-Mart smock. I guess if I don’t get the medieval hand done I can be Ash before he goes to the cabin in the woods.

I downloaded every picture I could find of the outfit to get the main details. There is a weird cuff that I figured out a simple way to replicate, but the thing I didn’t notice was that the original was a zip-up smock.


Oh well. I think it captured the spirit of the outfit.

Step 1: Base Piece

I used a blue Red Cap labcoat as the base of the costume. I lucked out and got one online for under $10.00.

Step 2: Sleeves

I cut off six inches from the sleeves.

I then folded them up 4 inches then halved that and folded the edge back down, making a two inch cuff. I then sewed everything together with a piece of ¼” red bias tape around the edge. Make sure to get the double fold bias tape.

I then sewed the red bias tape around the collar and onto the front pocket.

Step 3: More Red Trim

I then sewed the red bias tape around the collar and onto the front pocket.

Step 4: Tailoring and Final Trim

I then cut 10 inches off the length of the coat and finished the edge with a half inch of light blue bias tape.

Step 5: Ta Daaa!

And there you have it.

Hopefully I'll be back in a few days with S-Mart ID and medieval hand Instructables.
