Arming Doublet – XV-th century

Another doublet.
Like the previous one, the pattern was based on the doublet of Pandolfo Malatesta. This time it was followed more faithfully though.

Quite a bit more research was put in too, so the result is a much more acurate garment.

We’ve made this one using cotton velvet for the facing and linen for the lining. A middle layer made of canvas is used to provide structural strength.

The doublet is mostly machine made, although the finishing and some parts we’re made by hand.
