16th Cent Rapier belt Patterns
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?

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.
Wow! Thanks
Thanks Dan! Great stuff!
