In this view of Queen Dierdriana of the West in 1984, details of the bodice & trim can be seen on this 12th Century Norman high contrast color costume> she is wearing a lovely brooch she was given by a co-worker.

Do look at the additional views & closer look at the materials as they look today (photo taken 7-13-2009). The belt has only been laundered by hand. The rest is machine laundered & dried in a dryer.

Unfortunately, the cotton trim fades over time. Consider the material is some 30+ years old.....

About the TRIM for Steingrim & Dierdriana’s Norman outfits: All the trim is cotton fabric that was a striped design from wide to narrow.

It is golden, maroon & teal. It was perfect for cutting strips from narrow to wide to create trim for different areas of the tunics & lent itself well to beading, which I did on mine.

In creating the trim the way I did, there are no unfinished seams inside the costume at the hems, cuffs or sleeves.

And, for both costumes, there are yards & yards of trim to which I had to zig-zag the edges of first & then pressed to fold in the edges - before setting in the first pinned section & finish it. And yes, I used top-stitching – it is an ancient use of stitching.

The outer tunic on Steiny’s is the same color & fabric as my under tunic. I bought it all the material at the same time with the idea of making mine, once I finished his for the contest.

The maroon material is trigger, which is sturdy & lasts. He and I still have our costumes & they have held up. I made Steiny’s & finished it in June 1980. It washes well & wears well. It is a tight weave & suitable for any modern medieval clothing one wears outside.

I finish all seams & some seams are top stitched to add to the sturdiness of the outfit.

Steingrim’s under tunic is black raw silk-cotton blend with a nice feel to it. I bought all the cotton trim fabric at the same time. When I finally was ready to make my outer tunic, I looked for a teal to compliment the teal in the trim & found a remnant of washable velveteen.

I made my own lacings in a gold macramé yarn with single finger crochet & it laces down both sides & so did Steingrim’s lace with leather lacings.

My trim & trigger backed 'girdle' belt for this era is 60 inches long & Steiny’s is 90 inches long.

I made a headdress scarf, lined & Trimmed that tied on for mine, though mostly wear a veil.

See the full view of Dierdriana (black & white photo) from a company newsletter, October 1983 (article about SCA).

See additional photo of Radnor, kneeling in court in a 12th Century costume I made for him. That one has commercial trim on it.

For the last 20+ years, my booklet, ‘A Man’s 12th Century Norman Costume’ has been available through AMAZON DRYGOODS’ Catalog: ‘The Pattern Catalog’ – see (same title mentioned): in new window.

I am unsure what is going on in the photos that shows me wearing my maroon under tunic only with its belt, though it shows how the belt looks in the back. We were silly, at times, so who knows!
