If you are looking for just a pattern for doublets the one I have used to
make my Lord's doublet is Dashing Doublets by Fantasy Fashions made with 3
layers of judy linen and a few alterations.  You will need to extend the
collar and the front so that it overlaps...Velcro it in place so that it
remains tight.

Also, you can purchase a complete fighters outfit at castlegardencreations
(http://www.castlegardencreations.com)  The shirt and the doublet (brocade
or twill) is $205 plus shipping.   The twill slops are $45 for a total of
$250 for the entire period outfit that is SCA acceptable.

Ok in the Museum Replicas Limited, or www.museumreplicas.com, they have
rapier clothing.  Vest runs $69, Shirt runs $49, Pants runs $39.  As for
weapons that I'll have to hunt around my old catologs to find them.
Hopefully this prices might be a little more reasonable.  Aurore

  My advice is not to buy a Triplette SCA starter set unless you have lots
  money (don't see $200.00 as an investment), hardly ever fight, or
absolutely no
  where to turn for help with making something that actually looks vaguely
  (which this tunic does not).  Here's what Triplette says about it:

  SCA LIGHT WEAPONS FIGHTER STARTER SETS are intended to get the beginning
  out on
                          the field as quickly and as cheaply as possible.
  like to think that no one who buys a starter set will
                          have any of it left in a year, except for the
mask. You
  really ought to have improved your own gear, and
                          given away these pieces to a newcomer.

  If the company is saying that they hope you have none of it left in a
  except for the mask, this is NOT a ringing endorsement for its
use/popularity in
  the SCA (particularly in this kingdom).  If someone does buy and use it,
  fine...we're happy to have them fighting with us.  But I generally regret
  greatly when some new person invests in this kit, for I believe that
  not going to quickly dump a tunic on which they've spent good money.
  Also...don't go nuts and buy their ugly, big-salad-bowl "Maximum hand
  protection" R7, never-seen-anywhere-in history, theatrical rapier.  The R8
  much better and much more accepted within in the rapier community.   In
  you might want to consider initially buying the R8 rather than a modern
  bowl-based weapon...
