Sorry about the employment situation - but I agree, wow, these are gorgeous! I wish I could claim anything as pretty in my SCA closet Smiley Maybe sometime when I have more money and/or time (insert laughter here - I've been broke so long I forget what flush feels like)

This is terrific stuff. Very nicely done, especially the first one.

I wish my bf would let me make something like this for him, but he only likes the beastly stuff or the druid stuff. Werewolve costumes and such.

I'm not even surprised you're selling these, they're amazing, I know I'd pay for them!

SCA was my first impression as well. I don't do it, but my friend and roommate is a weaponsmaster of the SCA. I love hearing all the stories.

Who do you sell these to if not SCA folk. Not LARPers I hope?! (Though if they pay well, which they certainly do, then I quite understand.)

Hey what's wrong with LARPers? Apart form the plot element there is little difference between many of the LARPs i play and SCA that i have seen.

Anyway, back on topic, the doublets are clovely. It is nice to see somebody making good and interesting male costume. it sometimes gets terribly outshone by female costume. I'd love to know which patterns you use, as i want to try making a couple for myself and my SO. I'm starting a new LARP next year with a culture largely based on 17th Century Venetian city life so doublets are essential. You have provided a good spark of inspiration!

Yeah, I have no problem with LARPing - my husband was a hard-core LARPer back in the day, and I've played in a few myself.  Recently, one of my students and her boyfriend discovered that we used to LARP, and are trying to recruit us into their game.  It's nice to know that it's alive and well, even in the younger generation!

I adore historic men's clothing - you're right, it is overlooked, but it can be so pretty and fun to make!  I draft my patterns - but if you need to purchase, I highly recommend Reconstructing History.  They have a wide variety of doublet styles, and their customer service is top notch. 

Cheers!

Hi to all my fellow SCA!  I'm thinking that there should be a Craftster meet up at Pennsic this year. 
And now back to the topic:  I love those doublets!  I would love to buy one for my fiance.  I tried to find your etsy link on your profile, but there was none.
