A beautiful women's doublet pattern from Reconstructing History, dating from 1585 with hidden laced closure,
buttoned front, high collar, skirts, and padded epaulettes. Lacing
holes inside the armscyes are for the attachment of decorative sleeves.
Front of the doublet is boned so wearing a separate "paire of bodies" may
not be necessary.
Scoop-necked, sleeved, pointed-waist version also included in the same pattern.
