Re: [TheCostumersManifesto] Cavalier Patterns
- I have to admit a prejudice against Costume Connection. Most appear to
be "simplified" knock offs of Period Patterns designs.
Unfortunately, Mideaval Miscellanea does not have a Cavalier dress or
doublet pattern. However, the basic design is similar to late
Elizabethan, so you could adapt those patterns.
A good resource for adapting commercial and costume patterns to
historical reenactment is at

I know this doesn't directly answer your questions, but I hope it helps.
