Sally - oh wow, thank you!

Re: Pattern problem for 15th century doublet - help!

Re: Pattern problem for 15th century doublet - help!

no worries, Strickland, I have one of Petty Chapman's patterns from five years ago but couldn't make it fit.

I am very disappointed that Reconstructing History have not responded to my pleas of nearly a month ago.

hello Scottish Lady, I sent you a PM yesterday but it is still sitting in my Outbox. How about Thursday next week, 2pm at Bruce Miller's? They have nice sofas and good cappuccinos!

Re: Pattern problem for 15th century doublet - help!

hello churchmouse, tell me more about the Petty pattern and how I might get hold of it. I am experienced sewer, so should be able to work out how to construct the doublet as long as the pattern is a sensible shape. I appreciate your response, look forward to finding out more about this option. regar...

Re: Pattern problem for 15th century doublet - help!

hi Jackie, thanks so much for the sound advice and reassurance you gave me on the phone. I shall get the thing finished as best I can and look for an alternative pattern for a well-fitting doublet for my lord and master, as this pattern is not going to fit him.

Looks like I may just have to wait till January to finish the item. Appreciate your quick response to my post. regards
