In this e-dossier you will find instructions for the construction of historical men’s wear from the Renaissance period.
The Renaissance was an era of unparalleled cultural flourishing and artistic innovation that not only transformed the world of art and science, but also revolutionised fashion. Garments that symbolise the masculine elegance of this period include, in particular, breeches and sumptuous armour, which often featured intricate embroidery. These elaborately crafted tops embodied the opulent splendour of the era and became a byword for refined tailoring. In this e-dossier, you will find the basic pattern block of a pair of knee breeches and a doublet from the Renaissance period; the pattern development of a pair of knee breeches and a doublet with ribbons on the sleeves is also shown.
