No where near as sumptuous as Lady Kathleen's work, but here are a few photos of my ongoing "Germa-Bethan" doublet. The idea got stuck in my head to make a "hunting" outfit. I tend towards German. The lighter green fabric was waiting to be made into something, but there wasn't enough to make a complete gown.
There was just barely enough to make up a doublet. The darker green is an existing skirt. I was taken more by the men's doublets in Cranach's Stag Hunt portrait than with the ladies' garments.
Hopefully, this mash up of different styles won't be too offensive to period purists. Except for the shoulder and side seams, all the edges are bound with matching bias. The extension at the waist was whip stitched to the bottom edge of the body.
The doublet closes completely in the front. The ribbon in this photo is just to keep it on Frau Schneider. The shift/hemd will have some basic smocking at the neckline and the wrists.
Also, I have this crossbow I wanted to incorporate as an accessory. It does not have a "bolt," so I am not concerned about possible restrictions attending faires. But, now I need to find a way to carry the thing.
The plan is also to have a green, German-style hat, with feathers.
