This costume is not an exact copy, but a stylized version of the gentleman on the right hand side of the painting "Dignified Couples Courting" by the Netherlands artist Willem Pietersz Buytewech. It was painted in the years 1616 to 1620 and is now available to see at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam.
I did not want to imitate the material but to create the silhouette. I also wanted to make the hat and remake the shoes myself.
After doing my research I created a pattern, using Norah Waugh's and Janet Arnold's books.
