I recently filmed the scene where Romeo tells Friar Laurence that he and Juliet want to get married. It was a really fun scene, because my friar reacts with such emotion! I can’t wait until all my followers get to see how this fabulous project is turning out! If you want a quick sneak peak at my stop-motion dolly version of Romeo and Juliet, look back at this post. You can see my trailer there.
Meanwhile, let’s talk sewing…
This is the pattern for Friar Laurence’s medieval-style hood, and this is one of two patterns for Friar Laurence’s robes; here’s the other robe pattern. You can also use these robes for making costumes for Biblical characters, like Joseph’s coat of many colors, Jesus and his disciples, and even Moses. Here’s the tutorial showing you how to make his robes and hood.
And if you click here, you’ll be able to download a pattern that has the instructions for making Friar Laurence’s rope sandals. (My kids call them his “Jesus” sandals.)
Remember that all of my patterns are free to download and print on this page, and if you go back to this post, you can sign up for a free summer wardrobe for Barbie-sized dolls, handmade by yours truly.
Just a couple more things to note: when you print my patterns, it’s always friendly and kind to like it on FB, tweet about it, and/or pin it to your Pinterest page. That way you’re helping to spread the word that these free, printable sewing patterns exist.
Also, you must enlarge my patterns to fit a full-sized piece of computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) before printing. My designs use a 1/4 inch seam (standard for fashion doll sewing projects). If you have any questions about piecing this costume together, feel free to contact me, using my “Submit a Question” form. I’m always happy to help!
