Handmade by Gina Barrett for The Tudor Tailor in 100% silk and finished with Gary Smedley's excellent brass aiglets. 6 foot (180cm) lace in red and white silk 60.00 pounds This is made using the loop-in-loop method I posted in the NJ Ren Faire cast group on FB. We need to get this aiglet thing figured out.

Doublet 1580. 1. This aiglet was sewn onto the lace and I can find no evidence of marks indicating that it was riveted at any time. There is no evidence so far for sewing aiglets to laces. Also, the quality of sewing is very poor. 2. Many times the ends of the aiglets were cut or filed into triangular points in order to bend these ends down to hold the fabric of the laces. The ends have been on this aiglet were not bent down so that is another reason to suspect this was a replacement.
