French lady's costume

The costume consists of a blue cotehardie with golden buttons and ribbon around the neckline, ladie´s medieval shirt, mi-parti separated hose and short ladie´s braie. All made from flax linnen. It is originally designed according to illuminations in the manuscript " A romance of Alexander" ( Flames, 1344). The main seams were made by machine but it is intirely finished by hand and all visible seams inside-out are hand stitched. I plan to make the superior cotehardie with integral tippets soon.
