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

The seam between the wool layer of the two halves of the front gore were sewn wrong (which I guess is what happens when you get impatient). It didn’t lie flat at the top. I ripped out that seam and sewed it together again. It’s lying much flatter now. I also finished the edge of the front opening. Lastly I marked off and started sewing the eyelets. They are about 1/4-1/2 inch from the edge and 3/4 inches apart (the spacing recommended by Robin Netherton). They’re offset a la “The Zen of spiral lacing”.
