Early 15th Century Cotehardie

Early 15th Cen­tury Cotehardie

This gown, known as cote­hardie, kir­tle, cotte, cote, or gothic fit­ted gown, is based on early 15th cen­tury Euro­pean sources. The dress is made of linen. The but­tons are all hand­made. The bot­tom hem fea­tures a con­trast­ing fab­ric that matches the pin-on sleeves, all done with coun­ter­change but­tons. Some of the images show a frilled veil and a vel­vet belt and in oth­ers a linen coif.
