Like yesterday’s blog post, this outfit appears in my Romeo and Juliet with Dolls stop motion video. In the past, I’ve referred to this as a “Harlequin” costume because of the fabric I used for the shirt, which coordinates so nicely with the bi-colored pants.
And yes, I know that I NEED to finish putting together my stop-motion video of Romeo and Juliet With Dolls. All the still shots are done for Acts IV and V. I just need to find time — maybe this summer — to get the whole thing placed into a well-organized film with a soundtrack and everything.
But for now, here’s what you’ll need, if you want to make this Renaissance Faire costume: some solid colored cotton in two different shades for the bi-colored trousers, a printed fabric for the tunic, and some Dritz snaps.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
