Update: Heraldic Cote- HRH Gryffith FitzWilliam

The armor cote is progressing nicely.  The gussets are in and the quartered panels have been joined. All that is remaining is the join with the lining, buttons and the trim. Roughly 3-4 hours more work.

Update: Cote-Heraldic Quarters

I have all the parts of HRH Rapier armor cut out.  Piecing the stripes is the most difficult part of this armor, as all the stripes must go the same way.  The pieces are designed in such a way as the sleeves will be appropriately counter-changed: stripes with the yellow, yellow with the stripes. This armor still needs to be sewn together, though all the pieces have been cut and buttons have been located.

Project details:

  • Green/yellow striped linen counter-changed with solid yellow linen
  • Painted stags on the yellow panels

  • Green and white linen.
  • White linen has been painted with green ermine dots.
  • Cote and doublet have been sewn together to form a single garment.
