Tudor Partlet



This Reversible Tudor Partlet pattern has so many options. There are 5 neck options to choose from, 2 types of closures and an option to make the partlet from fabric or lace.
This partlet can be worn under a dress for modesty or over a dress to keep warm. The bonus hand muff will make sure your doll stays warm. Combine this partlet pattern with the Tudor Ensemble to get a complete look.
Add the partlet as a cover to the Medieval or Viking dress pattern, also available here from ReadCreations.
Since the partlet is reversible, you can get multiple looks from one partlet: open or close the front bottom, turn the back side to the front to not have an opening in the front and turn inside out to get a different color or decoration.
For those of you who like to embroider, do blackwork or who like to add beads, this pattern is for you. Add your decorations on one side and leave the other blank or do different decorations on each side to get two different looks.

This PDF pattern is designed to fit 18″ dolls such as American Girl®.

Complete the outfit with the Tudor Ensemble  and Tudor Jewelry Pattern from ReadCreations.
