Man's doublet and green trunkhose
The clothing was
inspired by the Venetian fashions in 1570-1580. We used sewing
techniques and patterns of similar existing garments, such as
the garments fully described in Janet Arnold, Patterns of
The doublet is made from a 50% silk brocade and lined with a red linen.
It fastens up the front with small buttons covered in the same
fabric. The trunkhose consist of an under layer of silk dupion
which forms close fitting hose, on this is sewn the upper layer
of black silk dupion and red dupion strips. Everything is
mounted onto a narrow waistband which has small holes to fasten
to the doublet with hand made laces. The front of the hose is
covered by a codpiece.
