Me as Claire Fraser from Outlander

This was actually my Halloween costume from last year.  I’m dressed as Claire Randall Fraser from Outlander, in an 18th century robe de anglaise.  I wore it to a Halloween party that turned out to be a surprise wedding, and I had too much fun to get good pictures of the dress.  So, this post is all pics– other posts cover the construction and the undergarments.  The only thing I added to the costume was a rolled-up towel as a bum pad because I felt like I needed a bit more in the back.

  1. Beautiful. I want one but with a modern twist – the bottom half would be form fitting to the body. Wished I knew you, we’d be sewing buddies. I wonder if you like rug hooking.
