Child's Highlander Costume Front View

In this front view picture, you can see the linae, kirtle and bodice with skirt attached. Notice that the slolder seam on the linae and kirtle are longer that in modern dress and hang outside the bodice armhole opening. The body of the linae and kirtle are "A" line to give fullness below the bodice. the kirtle was cut "A" line but the linae has an A shaped inset a few inches below the armhole opening this makes sure that there is not too much fulliness under the bodice.
