Roman Loungewear

So Costume College is just a day away sooner for some people and I am still scrambling to complete some last minute sewing for a couple different groups. But one costume I have complete is my Roman loungewear outfit :) which by nature of design was the easiest of all my costumes this year to complete! 
There are 3 pieces that make up the outfit: the tunica, which sits next the skin, the stolla which is over the tunica and more decorative, and the last piece is the palla which is a wrap that covers the head and shoulders. All the pieces are rectangles :) 

This site is a great little resource and what I followed to make mine

My plain tunica:

And a close up of the buttons on the "sleeves"

I have a gold palla and gold sandals to complete the outfit :)


  1. I love this! The color, the trimmings, all so lovely, like a Mucha piece!

    1. Thank you! I love Mucha!! So that makes for a very lovely compliment :) his art always feels so feminine and slightly magical or maybe mystical is a better word . . . :)
