The Venier Doublet

The inspiration.


Marco Venier

I see a slash below his left shoulder with his shirt peeping through..

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.

Pattern: undecided but may be either Reconstructing History, Tudor Tailor or Period Patterns.

Reconstructing History
Tudor Tailor

Period Patterns

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.
