Have you been watching the Outlander series on Starz? I have read most of the books by Diana Gabaldon, and I have seen a few episodes of the show. I enjoyed the books and the shows that I watched, but I know there are a lot of huge fans of Claire and Jamie out there. Outlander is getting a lot of interest and press lately as a new season has just started. What has struck me most, when watching the shows and reading about the shows, is the costumes. They are well done and beautiful! I found a few articles recently about the costumes from Outlander and how they were made. You can read about them here (Outlander Costume Secrets at Buzzfeed)and here (Outlander Costumes and Starz). And you can read more about the costumes and what goes into making them on the costume designer, Terry Dresbach's blog. Very interesting!

I am watching the series. Love the robe Claire wears over her nightgown. It appears to be embroidered silk and has unpressed pleats in the back and both sides of the front. Sure wish I cold find a pattern of something similar. The flowing fullness without being full of gathers is what I like.
