San Antonio, Tex...
I really dig Roman history & I go up to school and do Roman Days for several years now so I decided to make a costume that brings history to life. I made it a few years ago, but I use it on a regular basis & used it as my Halloween costume more than once. Its a Tunica, Stola, Palla, & I made a head dress piece to go with the Palla. The Stola is a Roman woman’s dress, the Palla is the drape. The Tunica is the undergarment.
I have made several different ones. White for a Plebeian, colored for a Patrician, even a long sleeve grey one for someone more from the country area. They are absolutely simple to sew!
Cotton or Linen or even light weight Wool for the Stola. Light weight draping fabrics such as Cotton & Chiffon for the Palla.
