The red sandals do make me think of roman sandals. Yet they are very different. The roman "caligo"was worn by men (soldiers and gladiators). Look how heavy they were, with their iron nails underneath the soles
For my draft I wanted to take elements of the clothing of a Roman woman. This is a roman woman wearing a stola (The feminine equivalent of the toga).You see how her bodice hangs loosely at the waist,how she has a cowlneck, and how her sleeves are slit on top. They are fixed with fibulae.You can compare them with safetypins
Roman women were dressed in solid colors . There could be embroidery My fabric is viscose/lycra, trimmed with solid red. In it I see flowers, galaxy, architectural elements etc, all mixed up in one mixture of time, place and space
Here the pattern that I drafted myself for the top. In the front you see the sleeveparts. Instead of fibulae I will use red buttons. You recognise the arrmholes (that is definitely not roman) and opposite the centrefront and centre back, I drafted a cowlneck and I widened the hems considerably. That must hang down in gentle curves
Difference between my top and a costume
On the left is my solution for making a garment work with the red sandals. On the left you see costumes.
