Getting Garb made for war and Fencing

My freshly painted mask

A fencing doublet I made for My DH the sleeves are attached

The sleeves are done in the Leine style of his Irish persona. 
I added an elastic draw strings to the sleeves to gather the wrist and there is a hoop that slips over his thumb that keep the sleeve firmly in his glove. I gathered the sleeves before sewing on the trim then I sewed them into the tube that they are. I then added a reinforced piece fabric to the under arm as per armor requirements. then I gathered the sleeve enough to fit the arm to the doublet.I think it needs some gold piping. But all in all it looks good and he is happy with it.
