My first Craftster project upload! Smiley

Made this costume for my friend (the model). Used a bed-sheet, and spent a few hours experimenting with draping to get the right look. Then, once draped, pinned down folds/wrinkles to set the draping: sewed it so that it always kept the same directional folds. Purple skirting is just a scrap of rayon, again draped and sewn in place. Belt made from a waist band from a pair of horrible thrift store pants, great metallic fabric though.

All in all, took a couple of hours of trial-and-error draping, a hour or so to sew all the folds, embellishments, belt, etc. Cost: about $10 (only b/c she bought the sheet new--with a used household sheet, one could make this for FREE!)

You did such a great job! That draping looks wonderful! I love the metal arm band too, it really finishes the look!

Thanks for sharing Smiley

She has such an old world look to her... this is perfect!  Like, if a Renaissance artist painted a female Dionysus, it would look like this.

Also, LOVELY job, chica!

Gorgeous! I know people who do greek/toga themes parties and if I wore something like that I'd be the best dressed person there.
