Greetings all. I wish to make a rapier belt/carrier for my Renaissance period garb. I ordered the hardware from Darkwood Armory. Where does one find a pattern for the leather works?

Thank you in advance for any replies/direction.

Unfortunately, you might have to eyeball it off of images. I'll see if I can rustle up some good ones for you.

Here's some images of modern reconstructions by various makers from a friend of mine-

I'll look around for artwork too. Figuring out relative proportions using points of reference like the size of your hand and those of figures in artwork will be your friend.
