For folks wanting light weight garb for warm weather that’s easy to make and period appropriate for multiple cultures…come join us!

What to bring:
* A 1or 2 rectangles (3 yards or more, preferably not a print) of fabric (lightweight, breathable). If you’re interested in the north African option, 6 yards of 45 in wide or 5 yd of 60 in wide….again trim optional. No prints but, woven patterns like plaids or stripes can work.
Lights or white knits common for under pieces. Linen, cottons and saris for draping.

* Appropriate large pins or buttons or a set of broaches or penandulars

* Narrow trim is an option

* A sewing machine and thread is nice but, not essential

With belting (long sash, soft belt or trim) and accessories you have comfortable , attractive, acceptable summer garb.

Women in Rome, Greece, North Africa and Celts (and Nordic ladies) probably wore these with slight variations and different accessories.
