Green late 15th century dress


I dont have any pictures from when I made this dress a few year ago, maybe 2014? But I got many questions about it, since it doesnt look like a regular cotehardie so I tought I should show what I based it on. It is not a fantasy dress but a simple and nice late 15th century German dress.
The fabric is a very nice and soft tabby in olive green from my shop.
The pattern is my basic cotehardie pattern with S-arm, but with some extra width in the front so it would pleat in the waist. I used 2 brass button and sewed loops in wool yarn and aded 2 or 3 hooks down the waist to close the waist.
