Since my last Elizabethan was so colourful, I’ve decided to do a black on black ensemble for the next set in my SCA wardrobe. I’m planning on a black doublet, sleeves, petticoat, and breeches (because sometimes boy clothes are fun). The first part (and the most time consuming) is the doublet. This requires the most fitting, and will have the most decoration on it.
The base of the doublet will be black linen, lined in mint green. For decoration, I will use some combination of fingerloop braids and couched cording yet to be determined, all done in black wool.
As of now the muslin is fitted, and I’m waiting for my green linen to arrive in the mail.
