Subject:        Scarlet Cloth Costume

I'd like to ask for some help from the list members.  I'm trying to
construct an authentic as possible of the scarlet cloth costume that
Shakespeare would have worn for the 1603 coronation of King James.  Can
anyone point me to contemporary paintings, drawings, designs,
descriptions etc. that would help me come up with enough to do a good
pattern for all the pieces?
