Elizabethan Arming Doublet

This arming doublet was constructed for use as a real working arming doublet. It goes under a set of full plate armor. It was similar to an arming doublet in Janet Arnold (except for the high standing collar) however, it has been modified to suit its purpose. The skirting and sleeves were added after several wearings. It also became necessary to add extra padding to protect the sholders and collor bone. This is out of site. There are between two and nine layers of warm and natural in different places.
