The Dress MacLachlan tartan is first described in the 1842 publication Vestiarium Scoticum written by John Sobieski Stuart and Charles Sobieski Stuart, two brothers claiming to be the grandsons of Bonnie Prince Charlie. The reference for the tartan claims its source is a manuscript from the 16th Century. In actuality, the authors themselves generated the referenced manuscript in 1829. Other similar tartans that these industrious brothers first designed include the MacLeod of Lewis and the Barclay.
