The pre-shaped sleeves elegantly end at the elbow, adding a touch of grace to your historical costume.

The petticoat consists of linen fabric panels, connected at the sides while leaving the upper ends open on each side. This design enables easy wearing of the skirt.

The Outlander Tartan
This tartan is meticulously designed to replicate the original as closely as possible, using natural dyes derived from vegetation available to the clan.
The colors, brown and grey, serve as effective camouflage during hunting expeditions. The Fraser tartan for OUTLANDER, inspired by the Fraser Hunting Weathered Tartan, was carefully chosen to suit the show's time period and setting.
The Outlander weavers paid close attention to detail, ensuring the colors and weaving style accurately represented the era and region of the Fraser Clan.
- Outlanders weavers took great care to design with the colors and style of looming that would have been available at the time and area of the Fraser Clan
- Tartan crafted with a hopsack plain weave with a wash to give it a natural and genuine look
To care for your historical costume, we recommend dry cleaning only, ensuring your costume remains in pristine condition for all your historical adventures.
Finding the Right Size:
Please refer to the size chart to select the correct size for your bodice. Keep in mind that an historical costume doesn't follow standard sizing, so getting an accurate fit is important for comfort and effectiveness. Here's a complete guide on how to measure yourself.
If your measurements don't align with the sizes on the chart, we recommend choosing the "custom size" option. After placing your order, submit your measurements through our Custom Request Form as soon as possible. Delay in receiving your measurements will also delay your order.
