DIY Outlander Inspired Cosplay Pattern Series by American Duchess for Simplicity
If you’ve been looking for affordable sewing patterns for 18th century Cosplay dresses or a pattern for a corset, this is the post for you. These are patterns for beginners, and all notions needed for these garments can be found at fabric stores.
The pattern sizes range from Size 6 to Size 22.

With the restrictions on the patterns – things like tissue size and complexity/length of instructions – we came up with two pattern packets that work together: the underpinnings packet with a chemise, bum pad, and stays; and the ensemble packet with a gown, petticoat, bodice, and stomacher.
