I’ve been sewing since I was a child and enjoy making costumes, doll clothes, and quilting. This is my sixth time doing the Italian Renaissance Costume Challenge and I’m looking forward to learning new things.

This year I’m going to do an outfit for my husband. I plan to make a shirt, doublet and joined hosen, cape, hat, and shoes.





First Update

 


I started with the under layer by making a linen shirt hand sewn with linen thread. First I tore a rectangle for the body and cut a T for the neckline. I gathered that on to a 3 inch strip for the collar. The shoulders didn't lay right so I took a wedge out and made shoulder seams. I then tore rectangles for the sleeves and gathered them onto the body.
