Every year we go to the Scottish Highland Games and Festival, and I proudly wear my fabulous custom made dress in the MacQueen tartan. My husband and all wear their kilts; and please know that the pattern of the fabric, the tartan, is one of the most important pieces to representation of the clan.
Of you who watch the Starz series "Outlander", or have read the series of books, you realize what a huge epic masterpiece has been written by Diana Gabaldon. Brought to the screen with such an incredible amount of research and accuracy, and every bit of that is shown through the amazing costumes of the time (1743). Jamie both wear the Fraser tartan; Jamie's full name in character is James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser. He was also known as Master MacTavish at Lollybroch. Research of the pattern on the cape kept coming back to the Thompson (or Thomson) name.
Originally derived from the name MacTavish! ; after Culloden, in fear of the. Jacobites, the MacTavishes changed their name to Thompson, a variation without the Mac, a Highland name giveaway for sure.This cape, in different tartan, is very similar. Noteworthy mention: Bonny Prince Charles is shown in several episodes wearing full MacQueen regalia - head to toe. The cape comes with no maker's label, so I cannot verify if it is even worn as a namesake tartan. But the construction is simple and very well done. 3 snaps to close front. This gorgeous cape goes almost to the floor! The hood is pliable and can be worn a few ways; the Black Satin lining is flawless. Pleats for an outstanding silhouette and movement. It is nearly impossible to measure bust of cape. Shown on a size 4, it can be worn large or by size 2 - 10. Length from shoulder is 55.
