Making your own medieval dress pins. Dress pins are a must have for the person wearing veils and wimples and so.

making your own medieval dress pins

But they are surprisingly expensive for what they are. I do understand why but still, I am a student and sometimes it is hard on the wallet to pay around four to five Euro for one single dress pin. A metal working friend of mine said “well do them yourself, they are really not that hard to make”. But I did not really believe her, nothing is hard when you already have the skills of the material. But when cleaning my worktable I found a piece of silver wire I bought a few year ago to wire wrap some jewellery and I thought that I can try it anyway. But really, they ARE NOT that hard to make. A popular type of pin heads are the wire wrap and there are a lot of extant medieval pins found with this type of heads.

I started with a piece of wire, it is quite soft at the moment but don’t worry, we will harden it later. Using a round nose pliers I started to make the wire wrap.

1330 AD Cotehardie

The cotehardie is a well fitting one-piece dress with flaring skirt and long tight sleeves, which reach to the knuckles. The dress fastens down the back. The neckline is wide and low. Sleeves have tippets that hang to the ankles attached to the upper arm. Hair is parted in the center and divided into two plaits that are wound around the ear. The head covering is of cauls over side rolls of hair. Shoes are of the turn-shoe style and are fastened by lacings. Accessories consist of a wide, ornate girdle worn at hip level. Jewelry consists of rings and earrings. This was an era of prosperity and luxurious living. The chemise had the same style neck and sleeves as the cotehardie. The under tunic was a well-fitted one-piece dress with a flaring skirt and long, tight sleeves which reached to the knuckles. Much attention was paid to the hair. Footwear was the soft-shoe, which lengthened even more. Return to Top of Page Step 1 Step 2. NP Historical Shoes.
