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.)

Thank you! The buttons and hand beading are especially are a lot of time, but they are so worth it!

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! (:
