Cotehardie around 1350th

This is my birthdaypresent to Björn. Handsewn with waxed linen thread in grey wool with undyed linen lining. The biggest challenge was to sew 60 buttonholes for all the tinbuttons.

I have taken the inspiration mostly from medieval manuscript pictures. For example this fresco preserved in the church of Santa Caterina in Treviso. It dates back to around 1355 – 1358.
