Purple Velvet Cotehardie by DaisyViktoria Purple Velvet Cotehardie by DaisyViktoria
My purple velvet cotehardie! I tried collage-ing this one so I could share all the angles in one image.
I made this for medieval reenacting in the SCA. The style is late 14th century French, though we see a lot of similar gowns throughout western Europe in this age - as can be expected, since those areas interacted so much!

My dress is cotton velvet, fully lined in gold silk. In the same gold silk, I made detachable sleeves, a belt, and a tressour crispinette - the hat. I did some hand beading on the hat and dress, and the sparkly trim was purchased in the closest approximation -within my aesthetic- I could find to period beaded trim. The necklace is made with real pearls, as is the hat. The buttons were all made by hand, and the buttonholes were hand sewn.

Guh. The fitted cotehardie are probably my favorite style of gown, along with the bliaut. Absolutely stunning.

Mine too! I love recreating various time periods, but I always go back to cotehardies and bliauts. They're so awesome!
