Outlander costume!

Hi! here is mu finished ''Outlander'' inspired costume. It is not exactly like the costumes on the show, but clearly inspired by it. I changed the color patterns a little, and based the bodice on a pattern in ''Patterns of fashion'' that was of the right style and era. The fabric was a complete surprise, as I stumbled upon a massive sale at Fabricland and found some dark blue tweed and a cream/brown plaid fabric for a very good price. I had already made the cowl and had the mitts for a while. I had some purple linen left and thought it would make a nice stomacher.

Anyway, here is the result!

I made pocket slits in the skirt and some hanging pockets to wear underneath. Claire wouldn't survive without those pockets!

And off with the wool! It actually was a really hot day when we took these pictures. A little while longer and I would have litteraly melted in a puddle! Wearing a tweed dress at 30˚C in july is maybe not the best plan. 

Funnily enough my bodice ended up looking a LOT like a bodice Claire wears in episode 11 of the 2nd season.  I'm planning to make another stomacher eventually, in a cream color this time, as to look more like the original version.  Now all I need is to find myself a Jamie!


  1. You look wonderful! You would fit right in on the show.

  2. Absolutely gorgeous!!! Those mitts are lovely, and your silhouette is perfect!

    1. Thank you! The mitts were made with a pattern from Jane Austen Knits. Not exactly Outlander but I suppose mitts never got out of fashion :P
