Alborghetti Suit: Doublet and Trunk Hose Foundation
Tuesday, November 29th, 2011 at
The doublet has the skirt and collar attached, but still not finished. The trunk hose foundation is put together (white linen lining and medium weight navy cotton(?) interlining). I built the foundation based on my tweaked pattern, then whip stitched it to the bottom edge of the doublet. I had to cut back the center front opening a couple inches on each side and hack 3.5″ off all the way around the waistline, but better too big than too small! If it fits the same in real life as it does with a few stitches and pins, I may actually be able to sit down comfortably in this suit…
