About this product
- DescriptionThe Modern Maker: Men's Doublets is the culmination of many years of research into historical tailoring. Traditionally, stage and screen costumers make these garments without the detailed stretching and sculpting that is the trademark of an old-world tailor. After examining surviving garments and analyzing tailor's pattern books from the era, The Modern Maker presents a simple, detailed method for making a doublet from around the year 1618. You will learn pattern making, hand sewing stitches, interior structuring, how to make a simple button from the time period as well as how to make a buttonhole by hand. In this book, you will learn the principles of efficient hand work. You will also see detailed photos of surviving garments displaying the techniques that are taught. Many of these images have never before been seen.
