"Interpretation of a Vestal Virgin based on period sources. Chiton (dress), palla (wrap), and suffibulum (veil) made from 5.3oz bleached white linen. The infula (headband) is made from 100% cotton cording used for upholstery and dyed red. "

This is an awesome accurate period costume. Way beyond the normal tunic,apron dress etc.
This design shows how a basic white material can be used to make a perfect garment and the use of the cotton cording for upholstery and dyeing it red just add another dimension to this creation.
Wow! Bonus points for such a unique creation! :)
I thought this was an interesting thing for someone to research and recreate, plus the way it was used in the ceremony at hand was beautiful. Many points to you! It was really neat!
This is a great interpretation of the traditional Vestal costume. Well done!
