Very cool, thanks for the tutorial! Did you use any type of material or does it matter? I have tons of cotton and I'd love to make some of these out of that.
I used a stretch material, but I don't think it will matter as in the Greek times they used linen. So cotton should work.

This reminds me of some of the costumes from the movie Troy. They had some really awesome looking stuff with indigo designs on them. It kind of inspires me to bust out with some dyes and fabric and my sewing machine.

If you mean cotton as in cotton muslin I think it will not give the same drape as this. You need something that has no stiffness or it will pouf and not drape, that's why a knit jersey would look fantastic. Great job with this, it wouldbe super cute with a oversize neckline and some denim leggings.

Huh, I'm going to mess about with this since you can kind of experiment with pins and not have to commit too much as far as cutting or sewing the fabric.  It's a pretty cool jumping off point for alot of ideas.

Is that the wide or the narrow version?

And what exactly did you do with the string on the straps?

This looks great!
