Recreate an enduring 17th-century pilgrim girl costume with this meticulously designed pattern by Keepers Dolly Duds. This early Colonial Pilgrim outfit pattern includes six pieces: coif (cap), ruff or falling band (collar), waist coat, chemise, apron, and petticoat (skirt). The waistcoat is fully lined and features sleeve caps and a sweet little curved, split in the back, peplum. It fastens up the front with eyelets and ribbon or cording. The plain floor length petticoat fastens with a single snap closure at the back of the waistband. The chemise has a small standup collar, dropped shoulders with gathered sleeves and elasticized cuffs. The falling band collar or "ruff" is lightly gathered and fastens in the front center with a mini button and thread loop. The coif has an elasticized back and ties under the chin. The apron is long and narrow. It ties at the back waist.

This turned out beautifully. The pattern was easy, fast, and we made the skirt and vest with blues and reds, not grays. I bought all the fabrics at a local thrift store on the 50% off day, much cheaper that way than from the fabric store. I got a beautiful burgundy wool vest for $1.50, the moth holes made it easy to cut up. My daughter is making another outfit with this pattern as I type this. I recommend the pattern for historical dolls, she made hers a 1600's girl. The only thing I would do differently is cut the lining of the vest a tiny bit bigger.
