A few years ago I was in a costume-making class at my university, and I drafted a pattern for a doublet, but because we had so much to cover in the class and I was a busy student, I didn't get to actually make the doublet that year! Over the past few years I finally had enough time to get this whole costume together, and my husband finally got to wear it to renfair this year!



Doublet: Drafted the pattern and put it together. It's made from remnant upholstery fabric with green and gold velvet trim and lion-face gold-colored buttons.
Undershirt: I made it from leftover material from a table cloth, the pattern is based on the Butterick 5008.
Hat: I made it from green velveteen, based on directions from the rennaisance tailor: http://www.renaissancetailor.com/ The feather is from Hobby Lobby and I just sewed it onto the trim.
Belt and Pouch: Were hand-tooled and dyed by my brother John. (More of his work in this thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=314280.0)

The pants were just regular dockers and the boots were costume-store boots from his Han Solo costume a few years back.
