plague doctor sewing pattern

Plague Doctor cloth art doll sewing pattern


One of my historical "art doll" patterns  : )    Our gruesome Plague Doctor stands 10" high (25cm approx) when completed.    The pattern has easy to follow instructions with lots of reference photos and full sized pattern sheet.

Pattern makes a stump doll, for ease of standing with jointed head and arms.

Instructions are included for the full costume which includes hat, coife and short cape, tunic, medicinal pouch, gloves and cane,  The mask is an integral part of the head.
If you are looking from something different to sew - do try him.  Also makes a brilliant steam punk or gothic character : )


You need 

  • Fat 1/4 metre  of cotton fabric (this can be as distressed as you)
  • Black felt 2 x 30cm pieces should be fine
  • Optional: contrast fabric for cape and lining eye-opening
  • Small 15cm piece for gloves (faux suede or leather work well)
  • Small 15cm piece for his herbal pouch
  • Narrow wooden stick (or dowel) 
  • Bead to place on top of the stick

Full "ingredients" listed on the back of his pattern.
