Here is another project I made that I finished in a month! Whew!  This is my nephew in his Madrigal costume.  I made a shirt (which you cant see, its black), doublet, pants, cape and hat.  I seriously had my blood sweat and tears in this costume.  This is actually my first Renn costume but I am really happy with it.  I followed a pattern for the doublet (but made some serious adjustments), shirt, and pants.  The cape/cloak, and hat I drafted myself from what I have seen online.  All the trim on the doublet is hand sewn on, it took forever.  And the sleeves for the doublet are removable with the eyelets.  I used leather ties instead of ribbon to tie them on and I did not have the points on them. (They were quite expensive) Not to mention the whole costume together was VERY expensive!  My sister and I estimated it over $400! I also made a pouch/bag which you cant see either from a reconstruction of a leather purse I found at the Good Will.  I was really trying to impress his teacher since she does have a degree in period clothing. Anyways......take a look please! Comments / Criticism excepted.

Wow, that is absolutely beautiful. That takes dedication. What was the event that you made it for? A madrigal? Singing? That's what comes into my head.
