A ladies version of the basic Gipsy Peddler rapier doublet made with 3 layers of trigger or sports cloth. There are metal buttons and buttonhole closures down the front which has a 4 inch overlap. It requires a shirt with a 4 layer underarm gusset to be list legal for SCA rapier combat. Your choice of antique gold or antique silver buttons.
NOTE: To accommodate the female fencers, we will shorten the torso of our pattern free of charge. Please measure your back torso length from the nape (at spine where neck meets the back/shoulders) down to the natural waist (at back where the spine dips - at about the same level as the belly button in front). Most female's torso length is between 16 - 18" unless extremely short or unusually tall. This measurement is important because of the waist/hip ratio in the female form. Some females with a long torso and small hips can wear the regular doublet.
Please add this measurement to the note/comment section on the shopping cart when ordering. At the same time add your choice of buttons as well. If you are unsure of your size add you other measurements as well.
All other adjustments will require a custom fee. Some women need picadils instead of the band around the bottom if their hips/stomach are considerably larger than their waist. Please convo us, if you need these additional alterations.

Small size - Garment measures 40" in the chest and 34" in the waist. Your body will have to be about 4" SMALLER than these measurements for ease of movement. So if your chest measures between 34 - 36" and your waist is 30" or smaller, this size will fit you.
Medium size - Garment measures 44" in the chest and 39" in the waist. This means your chest measurement needs to be between 38 - 40" and your waist should not be larger than 35" for this size to fit you.
Large size - Garment measures 48" in the chest and 43" in the waist. This means your chest measurement needs to be between 42 - 44" and your waist should not be large than 39" for this size to fit you.
XL size - Garment measures 52" chest and 46" waist. Which means your chest needs to be between 46-48" and your waist can not be larger than 42" for this size to fit you.
