Beautiful medieval style renaissance dress. This traditional medieval design cotehardie in velvet would be perfect for your themed wedding, sca or larp event. Very slendarizing design for most body shapes.
This is for a custom made medieval dress. It is a one piece fitted dress. This would be a great dress for a medieval themed wedding as a bride or a bridemaid. Great also for your medieval events. Cut is historically correct for the mid 13th century.
The style is a version of the medieval cotehardie. The cotehardie might have been the first tailored garment in Europe. It was cut to fit the body closely instead of previous styles that were loose and blousy and only fitted with a belt.
This style has a scoop neckline and and is cut into gores to give you a close fit on the upper body and a very flaired look to the skirts. It has long sleeves and small rolled hems on the sleeves and at the bottom hem. Dress is unlined but neckline is faced with the same fabric for a finished look. Also, inside seams are French seamed.
Can be worn alone, with a belt at the hips or with a surcoat. I have shown a couple of pictures of this garment worn at a wedding as a bridesmaid dress with a sideless surcoat. This is very comfortable and and very flattering style.
This dress will be made in a solid color velvet fabric in you color choice. This is a stretch velvet to keep the cost down but the color is so rich and beautiful.
This is a custom made order so I will need your measurements when ordering. I will also need about 10 - 14 days to complete your dress once you order.
