No, I didn’t get the actor, Jackson Rathbone, to voice Father Capulet in my upcoming Romeo and Juliet video. Rather, I chose his facsimile to remake OOAK-style into a Father Capulet doll for our Theater of Yore production. Want to see him in full costume, after the remake? Here’s a link to a picture of the doll after the make-under, including his face re-paint and wig (to make him look older).
To make the Renaissance Faire costume, first we’ll concentrate on making his tunic. Here’s the pattern for the grey tunic, and this is the tunic’s how-to video.
The pants are pretty simple. Just download this pattern, follow this video tutorial’s instructions, and before sewing the inseam, embroider little X’s up the pant leg. That’s not too hard. But please note, you won’t need the inlay section from the pattern.
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 the pattern 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!
