Gold and Rose Greek-
A peplos fashioned from a vintage silk sari- something I have meant to do for a while but ended up being far more complicated than it should… this involved lots of cutting and piecing to get the borders where I wanted them and in appropriate locations for greek.
Worn depicting a goddess for this event thus the symbology…
