Purple Red and Gold Medieval Gown by DaisyViktoria Purple Red and Gold Medieval Gown by DaisyViktoria

This gown, known as cote­hardie, kir­tle, cotte, cote, or gothic fit­ted gown, is based on early 15th cen­tury Euro­pean sources, particularly Duc de Berry's Tres Riches Heures. The gown is made of linen because I live where it gets very warm, and the contrasting band and tippets are silk velvet. The trim is made by hand, and the hat is brocade.

Something about the sensibility of your entire ensemble really captures the essence of the medieval period for me! The colour variations, the headpiece... straight out of a 15th century woodcut or illustration... I love it!

Thank you so much! That is always the best, to look like you've stepped out of an illustration! This is actually one of the outfits I wear sometimes to SCA events. It's super comfortable to wear too, which makes it more likely for me to wear it a lot. :)

Wow this looks great. I love your sleeves, only lately I saw them in "The evolution of Fashion". Great Job!

Thanks! And awesome! Sometimes they have attached tippets too, but I just like the detachable ones so I can remove them when they would get in the way of what I'm doing.
