While still working on my spring summer Historical costume project I have started on my Historical fall. Well at least the things I could make for cheap in about two days. I decided to stay in the 18th century. It is my favorite after all
This fall I pick a costume from the tv show Outlander to recreate and put my own little spin own. Now I have a very LONG list of costume I love from the show and I hope I can get to a few of them in the next year but for now one will do. I choose this lovely little Highland number with a cowl, skirt and jacket.
I’m still on a fabric hunt for skirt fabric but I decided to get the easiest part of this costume out the way.
This was my chance to put my newly learn skill of crochet to work and use in a costume.
I searched the internet for a similar cowl pattern and found this one from Simplicity Highlander Crochet Cowl. The pattern is free and great for beginners. I was able to make the cowl in two days in between daily routine.
