This pattern is just for the Highland Dress Shirt. Other patterns in the Highland Dress and Highland Dance Series are available to enable you to make a complete Highland dress or Highland dance outfit for your doll. Complete the look with the Prince Charlie Jacket and Vest, Highland Kilt, Socks and Ghillies, available separately, as well as in bundled packages (see listing image for purchasing options available).
Although a Scotsman can wear any shirt he likes with his kilt, if he is in evening dress, or if he is competing in a Highland Dance competition, then he will need a proper dress shirt to wear.
This fitted dress shirt has a wing style collar, forward shoulder seams, and straight sleeves with a bound placket. There are a choice of two shirt front styles, plain or with tucks either side of the button band.
The shirt also works for other occasions too – it is also nice made up in other fabrics than white lawn, such as embroidered fabrics, tiny polka dots, microcheck, gingham, or striped shirting.
The shirt features five buttons down the front, and buttons on each of the cuffs.
The bow tie is made from double sided satin ribbon and fastens at the back with a snap or some hook and loop tape.
It's not just for boys. It's perfect for girls too, worn with a tie or with a scarf, even open-necked. I’m certain that your boy or girl doll will find that they need a dress shirt in their closet – maybe more than one!
This pattern is also available in a bundled package with the The Prince Charlie Jacket and Vest and The Highland Accessories pattern at a discounted bundled price.

I recently made the boy’s "Highland Shirt” from Genniewren’s Highland Collection. I made the pin tucked, formal shirt with the winged collar and bow tie. It’s the perfect shirt to go with the rest of the Highland collection. But it will also be your “go to” shirt for a tailored button down shirt using the plain, untucked version. It’s well fitting, and has instructions which include stay-stitching and grading of seams to create a well-constructed garment. It’s not your fast, basic shirt—this one has functioning placket sleeves, a shaped collar, and a curved hem — just like a real man’s shirt. It’s a “fitted” cut, so leave the darts off if you have a fluffy PM doll like mine.
