Boy's Highland Bundle 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

3 reviews   |  

This pattern bundle, by Genniewren Designs, contains three patterns that are required for Male Highland Dress or Highland Dance uniforms: The Prince Charlie Jacket and Vest, The Highland Dress Shirt, and The Highland Accessories pattern.

All the patterns are also available separately. Please click on the links above to find more detailed information about each of the included patterns, and see the listing image for all of the individual and bundled Highland patterns available

Recommended Fabrics: JACKET AND VEST This pattern is designed for woven fabrics only. For the jacket and vest medium weight woolen or linen fabrics are recommended, approximately 190-300 gsm (a similar weight to soft denim jeans). Lightweight silk or acetate lining fabric is recommended for lining the jacket and vest. HIGHLAND ACCESSORIES For the plaid you will need miniature tartan fabric, preferably woven rather than printed as both sides of the fabric will be visible when the plaid is worn. Light weight tartans such as brushed cotton shirt fabric are best as they will drape better than the traditional woolen fabrics. You can usually find mini plaid fabrics at heirloom sewing stores. For the sporrans you will need soft leather or leatherette/vinyl fabric for the every day sporran and fur fabric for the front of the purse style sporran. The Balmoral Bonnet is made from velvet, woolen or fleece fabric. I used lightweight Barathea, but any soft drape fabric will work, e.g. flannel. HIGHLAND DRESS SHIRT The shirt pattern is designed for lightweight woven shirting fabrics such as cotton or polycotton lawn, percale, chambray etc.
