This is a beautiful dress; I love the colors.

Do you happen to have any documentation for a cotehardie with buttons all the way to the floor? I have some green velvet and I was wanting to do this same thing with it, but I haven't seen any period examples. (I'll probably do it anyways, but if I can document it, I can enter it into a competition.)

It looks like it. I'm not entirely sure I want to tackle something this... elaborate... any time soon. ~sticks with her extremely cheap cotton dresses that look like sacks on her 'cause she wasn't that good with a needle when she made them~

It's funny because I just learned what a cotehardie was in my very current college class.

That's so cool! They're also referred to as gothic fitted gowns and sometimes cotes or cottes, and especially with the later front lacing styles, you'll see them called kirtles too. So you have more terms to search if you want to learn more! (:

Hurrah for crispinettes, hailing from the fabulous era of Weirdest Ladies' Headgear Ever! Also featuring the nebules, the templars, and the hennins. I <3 crazy gorgeous medieval hats!
