      For 12th century, you can try joining the yahoogroup

      _12thcenturygarb@ yahoogroups. com_ (mailto:12thcenturygarb@ yahoogroups. com) and checking out our

      files. We have put together a lot of information about styles from different

      areas as well as different thoughts on the construction methods, and there

      are also a number of photos from members of the group, either wearing their

      garb or step-by-step of making it. One note, we do spend a lot of time

      talking about the bliaut, which is the quintessential 12th century fancy gown

      and about which there is a trememdous amount of debate regarding construction,

      but that isn't the only style women wore in the 12th century - it's

      something analogous to a formal evening gown today, the kind of thing you would

      wear to a dinner at the White House or something.
