The woman from Dacia

Request: A servant/slave in ancient Roman times from Dacia.

Together we gathered information about what this woman could have worn. I used a gauze linen and dyed it with madder (red and orange) and birch (green). They think they might have made ‘cheap’ green from mos and algae, and this was also thought of a very toxic process, so for my and my clients health I used birch with a touch of iron.

I made a Chiton (dress), short Palla (draping scarf) and headscarf. All hand sewn with wool thread.

You might be seeing her wandering around in Archeon Museum Park.

The Handmaiden dress is currently the most wanted dress in my shop. I keep a steady stock of different fabrics and styles. These dresses are resizeable and can be used for many occasions. LARP, Renfaire, Festival, Weddingdress or Bridesmaids and of course for COSplay. It is a very sustainable dress, because it doesn’t matter which sizes you are, it will fit.

These are/were the ready made Shae dresses you can buy straight from the Etsy shop or on an event. You can also request a custom Shae dress via Etsy or contact.
