Red + Gold Renaissance Doublet Final by paedess Red + Gold Renaissance Doublet Final by paedess
Alexander Cole's red & gold doublet in its final form.

10/2011 Update: If you're wondering why you don't recognize this image it's because it has been updated to reflect the finished doublet.

The doublet is approx. 90% hand sewn, and clocks in at around 115 hours of labor. Full costume with not-shown double-sided cape, canions, hose, slops, and hat clocks between 450-500 hours.

To view the full costume that was completed in Summer 2011 click here.

Thank you :iconfrocktarts: for the DD! :hug::hug::hug:

I was doing a cursory image search for doublets on google for inspiration and this image came up.  I've made one doublet myself about a year ago and I'm starting work on another one for a fantasy festival in Oregon in a few months.  I must say I'm floored by how beautiful it is.  I'm surely going to have to up my game... well as much as I can at least as sewing still is a new art form for me.  I won't bite off your design of course! Or anyone else's for that matter.

The fabric on this is absolutely beautiful.  Is the embroidery on the top portion actually part of the fabric itself or an applique if you don't mind my asking?

The gold embroidery is part of the fabric, the additional stripes are appliqued.

Thanks for the feedback.  It really is an absolutely lovely fabric.  I've been pouring over fabric stores in the Bay Area for the last few weeks looking for just the right fabric for my endeavor.

I love this so much! The full costume is just stunning, especially the small details (like the aiguillettes).
Will it ever get a matching codpiece? ;)

I'm Cassandra, btw. Alexander (the designer) does all his networking through me so lay it on me and I'll do the chit-chat for the both of us. We can do skype too, but we have a crazy schedule this week so skype wouldn't work until at least the weekend.

This is lovely. I really like how the top is so ornate. Was boning used in it? The fabrics are beautiful, and I love the buttons. (:
Reply
:iconpaedess:
paedess Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2011  Professional General Artist
No boning was used. All of the structure comes from the layers of fabrics and the cut of the panels. We actually go through the process on our blog [link] Our very first post is the beginning of the process.
