About Zoe: I’ve never been able to be as involved as I wish in the SCA. However, I’m at a time in my life where I can make some changes and become as involved as I would like. I sew regularly along with a number of other crafts. I’ve worked in theatre, tv, and movies as a costumer. I love to try and work on new crafts and there are a number of them that I do and would like to learn, nalbinding being one that just popped into my head. While the sewing of these garments is not necessarily that difficult, I’m hopingtime will permit me to work more on my hand stitching but mainly I’m hoping to be able to work on my embroidery/embellishment and research skills with this project.
Her Project: I’m creating an outfit for my new persona, a Hellenistic Grecian noble woman during the time prior to Rome taking over Greece. I’m beginning with a strophion (basic band bra); a peplos and/or a chiton; a himation; and for the final accessory layer I’m still trying to decide between some kind of shoe or some jewelry to go with the clothing. While these are relatively simple clothing, I do plan on doing either some fabric painting or embroidery (my choice will be made when I figure out timing).
