Trimaris Regalia: Royal Champion Tabards
Total items per project:
- 1 King’s Champion tabard
- 1 Queen’s Champion tabard
- All fabric should be pre-washed and dried to ensure dyes are set and will not run in case of contact with water. Fabrics should be durable and similar to those used in period.
- Cotton (trigger, blends)
- Linen (linen/poly blends)
- Cotton velvet
- For other appropriate fabric choices, check with the regalia committee prior to purchasing fabric.
- Cotton, cotton/poly, etc
- Tabards should bear the King’s and Queen’s arms respectively to denote that the wearer is a champion for TRM.
- The arms should be appliquéd or embroidered to ensure durability.
- Painted arms are not accepted as paint has both wash and storage issues.
- The Royal Arms should be displayed either centered or over the right breast.
- The arms should be displayed in a size that denotes the wearer of the tabard is a subject of the Royalty, rather than a member of Royalty.
- All design pieces should be embroidered or appliquéd in place, sewn completely with thread around all edges to protect from wear. Due to wear and washing needs, glue is not an acceptable fixative.
- Both tabards should be lined, or have neatly finished edges. All support seams should be French seamed or surged.
- One tabard shape should be used for both tabards in the set. Tabard sleeves are optional
- Tabards should not be sewn up the sides so that they may accommodate individuals of varying size.
- Neck openings should have a keyhole shape so that heads of various size can be accommodated without necessitating overly large neck openings
