Short-sleeved Cotehardie Ava, Medieval Dress, green
Medieval Laced Kirtle / Cotehardie Ava, short-sleeved, green

This long, waisted medieval dress or kirtle is made of sturdy cotton fabric (canvas). The skirt piece is fitted with so-called gores (wedge-shaped / triangular pieces of fabric) that give it a generous flare, and the upper part features a centre front lacing made of thick cotton for individual adjustment. The ends of the tie string are equipped with metal tips that allow for easy threading through the stitched eyelets.

The cut of this gown is based on medieval illustrations from the 13th to 15th centuries. While the women's garb had been rather loosely cut and figure-concealing until then, this era saw the rise of garments of increasingly close fit. The cotehardie, which evolved from the French loose-fitting cotte and approximately translates to daring cotte, presumably owes its name to its bold, tight-fitting nature.

A typical kirtle or cotehardie usually featured lacings or a button closure at the centre front. The introduction of laces and buttons as functional fasteners (rather than pure ornamental items) is actually what made tailored, form-fitting fashion possible in the first place. Another distinctive characteristic of these dresses was the wide neckline, which seemed to get lower and lower with time and was particularly popular with women during the late Middle Ages and Renaissance.
The cotehardie was usually combined with a chemise or shift, a veil and a narrow belt. Short-sleeved variant was also often worn with removable, interchangeable pin-on sleeves.

Historical illustrations of 15th c. kirtles can be found amongst others on the June calendar page of the Duc de Berry's Book of Hours, a French illuminated manuscript (original title: Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry), or in the Book of Simple Medicines (Woman and Unicorn) illustrated by Robinet Testard.
