Late medieval Cotehardie Ava brown
This long-sleeved dress is made of strong canvas fabric. It is inspired by late medieval dresses called Cotehardien. These dresses are characterized by their waist, because in the late Middle Ages tight-fitting clothes or dresses became increasingly fashionable.
In the front it is equipped with nest holes in the chest area and is tied with a nest string. This allows the tight dress form to be put on and taken off.
Representations of a Cotehardie from this period can be found, for example, in the June calendar page of the Book of Hours of the Duke of Berry, a French illuminated manuscript (original title: Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry), or in the Book of Simple Medicine (Virgo and Unicorn) illustrated by Robinet Testard, both from the 15th century.
