When Ian was elevated to the status of Baron, I wanted to make my Don something heraldic and formal to celebrate the occasion. Using the pattern we had developed a couple of years ago, I made a simple green cote, with ermine doublet and reversible ermine/green hood. The hood was made to rapier armor specifications. Because one cannot have too many list legal hoods.
- Outer cote: Cotton velvet
- Doublet: Ermine fabric is pre-printed. Having hand painted ermine spots before, I found on demand printed fabric. http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/315883 in 50/50 linen cotton blend.
- Tippets: Linen
- Hood: Ermine fabric and linen, with liripipe
