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

I had the very good fortune to be able to attend a lecture by Robin Netherton. She lectured on her method for achieving this type of fitted dress and she also talked about her reasoning why the garments found in Greenland around that time (the so-called 10-gore dress) aren’t good examples of the fashions on the mainland. All-in-all, she was very convincing (which made me horribly unhappy that I’d used the 10-gore method to make my dress for Twelfth Night. Ah well, live and learn).
