4 reviews   |  

This pattern bundle, by Genniewren Designs, contains three patterns that are required by both genders for Highland Dance uniforms or for Highland Dress: The Highland Kilt, the Highland Socks and the Ghillies patterns.
Each of 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: Kilt - woven light to mid weight plaid fabric, e.g. flannel, viscose/wool mix or cotton shirting fabric; Socks, teeshirt knit fabric, Ghillies - soft leather, marine vinyl or similar weight leather-look fabrics

Supplies Needed:

- 1/4 yard of 60” wide woven plaid fabric cut from the bolt (you need the full width of the fabric). If you cannot get 60" wide fabric then you will need to join the fabric, matching the plaid pattern accurately. If you wish to use printed tartan fabric, then this is OK for the kilt but it will not be any good for the fly plaid. The fly plaid is not always worn and is not worn for Highland Dance.
- 1/4 yard of 44"wide woven cotton or polycotton fabric for the kilt lining
- 7” x 4” of Lightweight fusible interfacing
- 2.5” square of Vinyl/ leather or leatherette for the kilt straps
- 2 x Small buckles to take 1/4” straps
- 2 x Small sew on snaps OR 4” of 1/4" wide ultra thin hook and loop tape (both sides)

- 12” x 6” marine vinyl, leatherette or soft leather
- 2 yards of 1mm round black elastic, or leatherette jewellery cord for the laces
- 4” x 4” square of card or chipboard for the inner soles*
- 4” x 4” square of 2mm craft foam for the outer soles*
* if you prefer, you can use the Pixie Faire Size 1 precut soles. You will need 2 card soles and 2 foam soles.
-Glue suitable for doll shoe making – either hot glue sticks for a glue gun, or a tube of any type of glue suitable for the fabric you are using. Please note that some glues will melt vinyl fabric, so check the manufacturer’s use guidelines carefully before purchasing glue for doll shoe making.
- 8 x ¼” eyelets for eyelet option ghillies

10” x 14” of 100% cotton teeshirt knit fabric.
- 8” of ½” wide tartan plaid ribbon (Male Highland Dress only)
- Fray blocking fluid
- Inkjet transfer printer paper for fabrics (if you wish to iron the sock design onto your fabric).
- Fabric markers in the colors to match your chosen kilt plaid (to trace the sock design onto your fabric)
- You may also find a light box helpful if you are tracing the sock design, or you can tape the printable to a window pane to trace the Argyle pattern.

Great Pattern

Loved the pattern and detailed instructions. I feel like I could see a real kilt. The chillies were fun to make.

Highland Dress and Highland Dance Unisex Bundle

This pattern contains the Highland Kilt, Highland Socks and Highland Ghillies. You can use this pattern bundle on it's own or use is to round out either the Boy's Highland bundle or the Girl's Highland bundle or both! All 3 included patterns have easy to follow instructions and give a great fit on your doll. The kilt is amazing. I never knew how a modern dress or dance kilt was constructed until working on this pattern. The pleats are all in the back and you pleat it so that the plaid pattern matches up and you don't know the pleats are there until they swirl open. The kilt has an adjustable waist so you can fit it to your doll. The Highland socks are so cute! The pattern includes a lot of patterns that you can print out to iron on the knit material (I used a white tee shirt and it worked well) or you can trace the design onto the socks with fabric markers and a light box. Both give a satisfactory look. The Highland Ghillies pattern is fun and fairly easy.

Unisex Highland Bundle

You have to buy this one! This is the bundle which includes the kilt, socks and ghillies. The whole collection is great. I made both the boy's and girl's Highland outfits, and have reviewed each of the separate patterns individually, so please look at each. Great instructions, great fit. You're going to love the details.

Historically accurate!

There is so much information included in this pattern! You will not only earn how to make a kilt, but why it is made that way and the story of different plaids. The ghillies are very realistic and with the argyle socks (and there are several ways to get that argyle perfect included) set off the entire outfit. A must buy for any fan of Scottish dress!
