Here are some ideas I've put to paper.
|Front of doublet and sleeve.|
Style of both sleeves with match, but colors will not.
|Front of pants with requisite cod piece|
|Back of pants, bare legs|
with knee high socks
well slashed at the top.
I see the sleeves, colorful and puffy. No kidding, right? Not sure how I will slash the front yet. I know that I want the pants to be shorts. I have some wood block prints which show these sort of shorts, so I have no doubt that they are period. I want the overall silhouette to look big on top and thin on bottom. When I add an over large platter had covered in peacock feathers, it will add to the top heavy peacock look I am shooting for. This will likely be a long process, but these are the first steps of the design. This is the first time I am making my drawing public, before the garment has been constructed. I usually don't even make them public after the garment has been completed.
