Pattern making using the bara measure tape.
Baroness Alaina Blackram
Alaina will redact a pattern via the bara measuring tape which was used by the Spanish tailors in the 16th Century.
This method is taught by the Modern Maker and is from a class this January in Chicago by Mathew Gnagy.
I will need one volunteer for the pattern measurements and based on the volunteer we will do a gentleman's or ladies' doublet pattern from Alcega's Tailors Book.
To start with there will be the creation of the volunteers proportion measure tape as well as a length tape if needed. The class will show the creation of the tape and the one pattern fit to the volunteer. Further instruction as time allows. Recommended followup is the Modern Maker Men's doublet book http://www.amazon.com/The-Modern-Maker-Century-Doublets/dp/0692264841 this is the men's doublet book, it contains a lot of excellent information on making a tailored garment. The upcoming pattern edition for men and women is anticipated this year.

Demonstrations should not exceed 10-15 minutes in length.
