Yellow Cote (late 14th - early 15th Century)

Edith fit me for the dress using Robin Netherton’s methods (super secret, she made us promise not to publish them). Yes, it’s only been a year and a half… but in that time we’ve fit lots of other people for the dress. So we weren’t too rusty on the methods. We used some aweful chunky linen with thin black stripes on it. It was kind of fun to see the stripes wiggle with all the pressure we were putting on it. So now I have a pattern. I’m very pleased with the fitting.
