Greetings all,

As to yardage, my "Dashing Doublets" pattern calls for 1 and 3/4 yards of 45"
wide fabric for the basic doublet and that again for the lining.   You should
probably allow roughly 2 yards per layer depending on your chosen

(shrinkage - you know)

Fabrics:  4 layers of trigger, 2 layers of cotton canvas or heavy denim, 3
layers of Judy linen, 1 layer of leather.

Hope that helps in your planning.
