AUTHENTIC 16TH CENTURY NATURAL FABRIC VENETIAN HOSE



Authentic Venetians in Natural Fabric

Welcome to the 16th century!  These Venetian hose are authentic and historically accurate. The pattern was copied from a scholarly text detailing actual museum pieces, the construction method and techniques are followed very closely, and they are made up in linen with a full linen lining. 

Wool or other materials can also be used.

The front on this pair closes with handmade cloth buttons. Hook and eye closures can be used also, as on the brown pair. The waistband also serves as the lacing strip, providing the means by which the Venetians can be laced to the doublet.

Now for the details, which are important for living history re-enactors.  The pattern, or cut of the pieces, is distinctly different from a modern cut.  This gives a different fit and “feel” than one is normally accustomed to, but one that is quite comfortable.  There is ample room in the seat and the waistband rides at the natural waistline.

The waistband has grommets set in pairs.  Metal grommets were not used in the 16th century, when hand-bound eyelets were the norm, but since we’d like to keep the price within reason we have kept hand-sewing to a minimum.  Keep in mind, however, that metal grommets can be completely disguised with oversewing, and it requires only basic sewing skills to do so.  We are happy to provide directions to those who want to do it themselves.  When laced to a doublet, they won't show anyway.

The  front has an overlap of about ¼” to ½”. There is no button stand or underlap.  We add a strip of fabric between the layers to help support the buttonholes.

The leg openings on the pair shown in the photos do not have any kind of fastening.  This was optional in the 16th, it’s only a design detail, and we can add either hook and eye fasteners or buttons if desired.

The Venetians shown are gathered to the waistband. If a heavier fabric such as wool broadcloth is used, they will be pleated for a better fit.

Now, these are not museum pieces; they are constructed on a sewing machine.  We are not using linen or silk thread, and although there is no stitching that shows on the outside there is machine-stitching that shows on the inside.  These are meant to be worn, and cleaned using modern cleaning methods, so the construction has to be sturdy and durable.  All of the seams are finished appropriately though none of the seams show since these are fully lined.

Measuring

Waistline - People want different levels of snugness, especially in period authentic.  Some will like a looser waist fit. If your Venetians are being laced to a doublet, they can’t fall down.  On the other hand, some will not want grommets at all and the waistband will have to be tighter in order to stay up. 

Pass the measuring tape around your natural waistline (about 1” above the navel, in most cases) and pull it as tight as you want your Venetians to fit.  This might be more than your actual waist measurement, and it might be less, but it’s going to be the finished size of your waistband.  Please be accurate; with the exception of moving the buttons slightly, there will be no easy way to adjust the size of the waistband once it’s finished.

Inseam - There is no cuff at the bottom of the legs, so an accurate inseam measurement is important, because this will be the finished length of your Venetians. 

Hold the measuring tape snugly into your crotch and extend it downwards until you reach the desired length (usually just below the bottom of the kneecap).  It’s also a good idea to give me the circumference of your leg where the hem of the Venetians will be; I need to make sure they won’t be so tight as to cut off circulation, or so loose that they look baggy.  It’s especially important to have the circumference if you’re wanting fastenings at the leg openings because again, there is no easy way to adjust the fit (other than moving the buttons) once they’re finished.

Any personal bodily measurements that you feel are other than average (large thighs, long legs, etc.) should be mentioned, please, so I can make sure to allow appropriate wearing ease.  These do fit loosely through the hips and thigh, but they angle sharply to fit closely at the knee.

Lacing Strip/Waistband

If you don’t want grommets at all, we will omit them.  If you do, then I need your lacing pattern and will work with you individually to get the information.  Grommets are size 0 (¼”) and are available in black, nickel and brass.  Laces are not included.

Front Closure

Choices are hooks and eyes, period cloth buttons, metal shank buttons, or a combination of same.  Upon request we will forward pics of the metal buttons we currently have in stock.  Cloth buttons are made of the same fabric as the Venetians unless otherwise requested.

Fabric

These Venetians are priced for making up in woolens, linens, and other natural, and therefore costly, fabrics.  If you prefer a fabric that is easier to care for (machine wash and dry, little or no pressing) such as cotton twills, poplins, blends of wool or linen that are machine washable, we will deduct $20 because those fabrics cost less.

You may also specify the fabric - type and color - for the lining. Choices are linen, cotton, or cotton/poly lining fabric.

Please contact me with any questions. We will work with you individually to achieve the period look and cut that you desire, as well as matching your existing garments for color and style. We specialize in working with serious re-enactors and living historians.
