This is an autographed copy of the first book in The Modern Maker series. It teaches you how to draft a doublet pattern, using a system of measure from 16th century Spain. It shows you how to cut out the garment, what the correct fabrics are, and of course, how to sew it all together. There is no machine sewing in this book, everything is done by hand and there is a whole chapter devoted to the specific stitches. There is even a chapter that teaches you how to do a high quality hand-sewn buttonhole! There is a chapter at the end of the book which has many photographs of surviving garments from the Early Modern Era which support the theories and principles laid out in the book.

With this book, you will learn so much more than just sewing. There is history, anecdotal information from the world of Tailor as well as theories and philosophies that can help govern your path of self-training.
