UPDATE 10-6-17: My current lead time is about 3 weeks. Please use the Contact Form if you have any questions.
Please note that the clasps shown in the photos are no longer available. I will substitute with other gold clasps.
This stunning doublet is made with a luxurious chenille fabric which has a pale gold background and an elegant woven design in sea glass (palest green) chenille. It is lined with pale gold damask fabric and interlined with heavy weight interfacing. Lightweight boning has been inserted along the front openings for added structure and support. A placket has been sewn on one side of the openings which bridges any gaping and keeps the wearer’s shirt from peaking through. Six stunning pieces of antique brass adorn the front and close with a heavy hook and eye type closure.
The rolled tabs at the shoulders and waist are made with a perfectly coordinated chenille and have been embellished with jacquard trim. They are lined with the same pale gold damask as the torso.
The sleeves are detachable and tie with cording (crimped with aiglets) to d-rings which have been placed inconspicuously inside the doublet armholes. The fabric is a medium weight sea glass jacquard which has a tiny woven type design in gold and PERFECTLY coordinates with the other two fabrics. They are also lined with the pale gold jacquard fabric. I’ve sewn elegant pearl buttons and pale gold loops at five places along the opening of each sleeve. The sleeves are designed to allow glimpses of the shirt worn underneath.
As you can see, the doublet spectacular with or without the sleeves and is available for purchase either way.
This doublet is made when ordered in standard chest sizes 30 through 52. I do adjust for torso and arm length but not for ale bellies. 🙂
