Charles de Blois pourpoint pattern

In 2009 I developed a commercial pattern for recreating the pourpoint of Charles de Blois, the beautiful padded and quilted man’s jacket dated to the 1360s in France. The first small print run sold out, but now the pattern can be purchased from in spiral-bound book form. Here are a few excerpts from the pattern book, as well as images of two customers who’ve used the pattern to make their own garment. Click any of the thumbnails below to browse the gallery.
