Astarte's Raiment 18-20" Doll Clothes Pattern

1 review   |  

Inspired by clothing depicted in ancient Egyptian Art, Astarte's Raiment by BramBelles Boutique continues the theme with a pleated and fringed tunic, a decorated Wesekh collar and two styles of belt; a simple handwoven belt or a fabric tie belt.
The tunic is styled in crisp fabrics which show the pleat details. It slips over the head, wraps front and back and is tied in place with the belt. The Wesekh Collar completes the ensemble.
Pair Astarte's Raiment with "Cleopatra's Sandals" and your doll will be stepping back into the ancient past.

This pattern is designed to fit 18-20" dolls such as American Girl®, Australian Girl®, and other similar sized dolls.

This pattern includes 20 pages of illustrated step-by-step instructions, 4 pages of printer friendly instructions and 4 pages of full-size pattern pieces.

Recommended Fabrics:

Linen was traditional, but other fabrics that are light and gauzy and that hold pleats well would also suit, such as linen, handkerchief linen, cambric, voile, muslin, lawn, cheese cloth and similar fabrics. The colour was generally natural, cream or white, however some more recent tomb paintings also show patterned fabrics such as stripes and chevron patterns.

  • 30” x 20” pre-shrunk Woven fabric (Linen, cotton, muslin)

Astarte's Raiment

This is an east, fast and fun project. I used the loosest weave, cheapest muslin from Joanns. A friend of mine told me about making a pressing spray using vinegar:water, 1:4 ratio. I used this, and the pleats set beautifully. I love fringing fabric - just make sure you cut your fabric carefully so your edges will be on the grain when you fringe it. Oh, and be sure to look at this designer's sandals to go with it.
