Northern European Wool Man's Doublet and Plunderhose
Northern European Wool Man's Doublet and Plunderhose

This costume was made with a pattern in Janet Arnold's Pattern of Fashion book. The original garment was black silk and velvet and was being worn by Svante Sture when he was murdered on 24 May 1567. He was murdered along with his two sons and some friends on orders of the Swedish King Erik XIV. I altered the pattern to fit my client, as well as to simplify a few things and in one case because the pattern piece for the codpiece just didn't work. I also did not replicate the shoulder wings because there are some plans to make a leather over doublet.
