Our Outlander ensemble is inspired by Claire's everyday dresses but it would be equally appropriate fashion for a Highland lassie of 10 to 13. (While young girls--and boys--wore nothing but a cotton shift, older girls dressed like little adults--often in made-over versions of their mothers' cast-off clothing!)
This PDF sewing pattern includes four pieces:
Peplum Bodice has a basque waist and laces up the front with ribbon threaded through eyelets;
Tartan Petticoat is pleated to a fitted waistband with side openings and drawstring ribbon ties;
Stomacher fills in the bodice front opening and is held in place by the lacings;
Bum Roll is worn under the bodice and petticoat for an authentic period silhouette.
A bonus knitting pattern is also included for the Sassenach Cowl.
Recommended Fabrics: Bodice: wool suiting or cotton velveteen; Petticoat: pima cotton plaid or quilting cotton; Stomacher: quilting cotton; Bum Roll: unbleached cotton muslinSupplies Needed:

I have just started making this outfit. The instructions are very clear and I’m having no problems putting it together. I’m excited and hope to finish it this week.
I really loved this pattern. Sewing it made me confident enough to sew my own Mom size Outlandish Lass costume. My "Brianna" doll wears this beautifully at "Frasers Ridge"
