    This pattern is great! I made the doublet, shirt, and hosen for my ten year old son and his costume came out looking exactly as I had hoped. This pattern is for adult sizes; but with the instructions and the historical context included, it is reasonable for an intermediate or advanced sewist to adapt the pattern for the different size/body shape of children. For the hosen, definitely make a muslin before cutting fabric because the fit is important. I was suspicious that the hosen would not work with a woolen twill fabric; but cut along the bias, the hosen really did have the give needed for my son to move around (and even sit cross legged). The instructions included with the pattern are easy to follow although I would not recommend this pattern for beginners.
