Raspberry Wool Cotehardie and Green Hood - Collage by Arasiyris Raspberry Wool Cotehardie and Green Hood - Collage by Arasiyris
Please DO NOT use this for ANYTHING without my prior consent! Thanks =)

14th century English dress
Model: me
Made by: me
Photos taken at UofT in Toronto

The cotehardie is of shetland wool twill with a four-gored skirt and front lacing. The kirtle is of grey linen, also with a four-gored skirt and front lacing, and it has self-fabric buttons running up the sleeves from wrist to elbow. Underneath is a white linen shift. The hoot is of a thin green and black wool twill, lined with dark grey linen. It has a long liripipe in back and self-fabric buttons at center front. The belt is of cotton velvet, with brass and pewter findings. Everything you see here was 100% hand-stitched by me.

Here is the grey linen kirtle on its own - [link]
Here are the two other photos of the raspberry wool cotehardie - [link] and [link]

Hi there, sorry to bother but I am making a similar sort of dress and since yours turned up so prettily I was wondering, what patterns did you use? Did you find something on the internet or made/bought your own? Thanks for the help :)

Thanks! Medieval dress makers did not use patterns; rather, they used geometric construction and then fitted the gowns directly on the body. This is the method that I use. I do it by starting with my torso measurements, dividing them in 4, and drawing the 4 basically-identical panels on the fabric. Then I fit it on myself and add gores. You can find more explanation and photos of the process on my blog entry here:

Lovely outfit! I was wondering if you had a pattern for this you don't mind sharing or a link to where I could get one? I have a Medieval Carnival I hope to attend next month and I am inspired to make my own. :)

Medieval dresses don't use patterns. They're put together from a bunch of rectangles and triangles based on your measurements and then the torso is pulled in to fit you perfectly and provide bust support. My livejournal has some posts about making this and other dresses (peryn-wn.livejournal.com) and if you google La Cotte Simple you'll find a lot of good info. Good luck! =)
