How about a doll’s day at the Renaissance Festival? Does your doll want to become a Knight? This Knight’s Garments pattern from ReadCreations will make it happen. This pattern includes instructions for the Pants, Tabard, Chainmail Shirt and Chainmail Hood. The Chainmail Shirt can be long or short and can have long or short sleeves.
The Tabard can be long or short as well and has two closing options (ties or hook-and-loop). If you decide on the ties, the Tabard is reversible for even more mix and match options.
Bonus Instructions for a belt and sword loop are also included.
Combine with the ReadCreations’ The Knight’s Armor pattern to finish your Knight’s look.
This PDF pattern is designed to fit 18″ dolls such as American Girl®.
