Bob Strikes Again!

BWAAAAAAAH-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Okay, that was a little…manic.

It’s been a long time since we last met, friends.  Here I am to bore you to tears with another sewing project.  Like last time, you stand a really good chance of seeing me mangle myself, the English language, and – no doubt – some perfectly good, unsuspecting fabric.

Last time, it was Peasant Man’s attire from the 14th Century (RH004).  This time, it’s a 15th Century man’s doublet (from RH003).

I know what you’re thinking; you’re thinking, “Saints preserve us, Bob, I’m after thinkin’ that’s a wee bit too complicated for you!”  Because you’re Irish all of a sudden, and talk like half a Pat & Mike cross-talk act. 

Yeah, it is rather more complicated than the long, straight lines of the peasant attire.  A 15th-century doublet is fitted, much more fitted than a baggy old tunic.  It’s got a tall collar and sleeves with big balls on the shoulder and has to keep your pants up. 

But I shall persevere, cousins, and you shall witness it.
