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.
Request: Shae dress with screen accurate belt in warm colours. There was a lot of bouncing materials up and down before this beauty was created. It is a mesmerizing sight to see this dress in different lights.
Materials: Red dupion Silk (Fair Trade), Chinese brocade dragon silk, Worbla, twisted golden rope.
