Featurette on the Costumes of ‘Outlander’

Costumes Featurette Screen Cap

A brilliant featurette just came online that is all about the costumes of Outlander and the costume designer, Terry Dresbach.  It gives us a wonderful behind the scenes look at the costumes in the making, scenes being shot, and interviews with the cast (Caitriona Balfe, Lotte Verbeek, Graham McTavish, Tobias Menzies, and I think our first interview footage of Grant O’Rourke and Stephen Walters).

  • Terry is a costuming genius! The clothes on Outlander are so beautiful. I wish she would put out a line of clothing based on these costumes.

  • Mary G

    Aside from her costuming genius, I think her blog is absolutely, positively fascinating! I’ve learned so much from reading it. If you ever read this, Terry, Thank You!!

  • Brenda

    Thanks so much for posting this! Loved that they interviewed Grant ORourke and Stephen Walters too.

    I do think the costumes are beautiful. I just don’t understand why Claire’s boobs always look like they are going to have a wardrobe malfunction. So distracting!

    • Kate

      This is the way they wore things back then. Stays started right under
      under the boob and pushed everything up. It is historically accurate
      for her boobs to be that way.

      • LadyJazzmine

        I understand that it’s historically accurate, but it doesn’t seem like anyone else’s boobs are as tortured as Claire’s. A little less torture would be preferred.

      My husband would say, “You say that like it’s a bad thing!”

    Oh dear. Pretty, yes. Accurate? No. Especially not that awful cowl. It is simply not possible to spin natural yarn that chunky without it weighing a huge amount.

    I know a bunch of knitters would love to see a line of knitting patterns based on those created for Outlander. Who is the knitwear creator?

  • Judy Keller

    The knits are stupidly inaccurate. But they ARE LOVELY

    I thought that the Claire’s stylish post war white dress in the first episode that gets transformed into Druid garb after her “adventures” in the woods, was a brilliant, believable and outstanding plan by series costume designer, Terry Dresbach. It is one thing to study the time period and recreate details in the wardrobe but this example exhibits her very finely honed understanding of her craft as well as incredible attention to detail.

    I thought that BBC’s Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth was the best period costuming – and it was quite marvelous; the gowns were very beautiful. BUT, I do think Outlander achieves the zenith in period costuming to date bar none. The costumes are superb! The costuming department under Terry has set the gold standard for all.

    I wear my great kilt to the renaissance festivals and highland games, wish I could get a jacket like they wear on the show to finish my jacobite outfit.
