Every Late Republican bride should have a new stola for after the wedding, right? I made the pleated one because 1) it was the only stola type I hadn’t made, and 2) it’s the only non-rectangular, non-dead-easy garment the Romans wore, aside from the toga, in my period. And of course I needed something complicated to add to my spreadsheet of Things To Do. LOL
I probably could have made my pleats smaller, but I am ok with them as is. They are just more like the ones worn by the male actor (right, Terra cotta, Naples National Archeological Museum, from Pompeii) than the female statue (left).
I also have a white linen tunica recta to wear under it. See you at Egils!
