Cotehardie Pictures... Finally!

These are the promised photos of the dresses I currently have and made (gave one away). I just ordered 5 yards of Royal Blue and Green Linen... so watch out more to come!

Red Woolen Cotehardie

So I donated one of my first dresses to a sweet little girl, and moved my pilgrims badges on this dress. I stitched the lacing eyelets by hand and most of the dress (info in earlier blog entry). I was rushing apparently too because I messed up on the lacing lol... but it does look lovely anyway! I really love how the four panel pattern fits so nicely over a woman's natural curves. Way better than the princess line!

Purple Linen Cotehardie

I'm wearing my two House badges for the SCA (ladies are not documented wearing these things lol). I LOVE how comfortable this dress is! My houses are; 'The Inn of the Tree and Cross' and the 'Hospitallers of Bordergate'.

Sideless Surcoat (Still a work in progress...)

I'll update on this project as soon as it's done! It's real rabbit fur too (made out of an old fur coat)! For now I have to get back to hand-stitching my heraldic dress! It's coming along nicely (just need to find time in my life).


  1. I love the dress! I've been trying to get ahold of you so I hope you still check this. I miss you!
