Master Colwyn's Elevation Doublet

While I was living in Drachenwald, Don Colwyn was offered the accolade of Master of Defense back in Caid. I knew that I wanted to make something particularly spectacular so I decided to make a completely pinked and then pearled doublet for him. I utilized his existing pattern which we knew would fit him since there was no way for me to do even one fitting before the elevation.

  • First was experimentation with using Gum Arabic as an edging sealing solution for the pinked edges as suggested in period documents. Different concentrations of painting supply Gum Arabic (which is 1 part Gum Arabic to 4 parts water) were attempted; 75% Gum Arabic solution to water gave the best binding results while impacting the color and stiffness of the fabric the least.

  • Treating the individual doublet pieces with the Gum Arabic solution.
