The Venier Doublet
I see a slash below his left shoulder with his shirt peeping through..
Close up image showing looped shoulder tabs and shoulders.
Duke de Nemours?
I wish I could find where I found the original.
Can you see where the above is heading? And I am thinking spiral paned sleeves as per Lynn McMaster's pattern.
Loop tab shoulder treatment and waist treatment are a must.
Black cotton velvet for the doublet.
Black silk dupioni. Lining/binding of Marco Venier doublet and sleeves.
Boning: 7mm x 1mm plastic whalebone from Farthingales but I may just try linen canvas and hair canvas instead.
Fastenings: buttons. I have a bunch of black ones that look like Chinese knots. I will probably use loop closures instead of buttonholes.
I have not started on this doublet yet.
