Sorry. I'll upload some tonight...

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get you some images. I finally uploaded some photos of the boots I ordered from medievaldesign.com in Italy. Though they're for a 15th century kit, hopefully they'll give you an idea of the quality of their construction. I'm still looking for the photos I took of the bottom of the soles, which would show the hobnails. I may just break out the camera and take some more detailed inmages for you this week.

Don't be sorry, no stress here.
Looks good from a distance at least.
Yes, they are photos from a distance. I will take some more detailed images this weekend and post them soon!

I make costumes of the renaissance period and love doing 16th. We take your measurements and make garments to fit but without the process of fitting you on site.
We also have some "pret a porter" items such as LOOONG wool sock/hose, gollars, coifs, veils. shirts both smocked and plain.
If you're interested then check out out FB page and send us a message. Always looking for new clients.
Tell us a bit about your techniques and materials. Do you do hand-sewing as well?
Kat does awesome stuff. Handsewing too.
Unless otherwise requested things are hand finished. Most lined garments are bagged out which is a modern way to line but keeps the costs down a little. We also do completely hand made garments if so desired. We do shirts and chemises in a modern french seam on the machine then hand finish cuffs, collars and hems. We also do smocked shirts and chemises.
We try to use original patterns when possible. Natural fibres always - wool, linen and silks.
Sounds very nice. Is it possible for you provide a couple of price examples? Say a shirt with smocked cuffs and collar? Or a "simple" slashed doublet?
