Re: Dyeing an Arming doublet.

Trying the arming cap first is definitely better than going straight in, worst you'll either need a new one or you'll have one an interesting colour. The question you really need to answer for yourself, is can you cope if it all goes horribly wrong? If the answer is yes, then maybe it's worth a try....

Re: Dyeing an Arming doublet.

The first question is has it been washed before? If not, do you know exactly what it is made of (including all layers and stitching)? If it hasn't had any form of washing, it could well shrink and possibly some of it will shrink differently to other bits. This is a big risk. Most natural dyes requir...

Re: I need 13th Century hairpins

The veil would be fixed to something underneath it, such as a fillet, a barbette, or just a tightly tied coif. Ordinary pins, not specifically hairpins, were used to attach the veil to the garment underneath. Most of the pins I have are made by 6of1 - http://www.6of1.biz/page9.htm - I'm not an exper...

Re: shoulder width on a doublet

3 fingers wide, even on my narrow shoulders would make the sleeve head sit about halfway along the shoulder seam. Certainly the sleeve should encompass the shoulder joint, rather than sit on the point like modern clothes do. A lot of men find this feels like the garment is too tight for movement, so...

Hi Brian, The problem with buying them off the peg is that they ought to be made of the same fabric as the garment. Talk to whoever is making the garment, if they will do them it's probably best. If not, bring a chunk of the fabric being used (each button needs a circle about 3cm in diameter) and as...
