Zaman dahulu kala

Sya is doing work about the Romans at school. It involves learning how they live their life, their food, the kind of work they do.

Anyway they end it today by dressing up like the Romans. So you can choose to be a soldier and wear the glimmering helmet with shield and armour or chose to be a slave. Or maybe some would chose the toga and wear the beatle's hair. Or a gladiator. Those shoes apparently are in fashion.

Sya wore a dress like the Lady of The Court.*Macam Bagus*

Do you know in the old times all of them were wearing very modest dress? Abaya like. Perhaps feminism and all these women lib thingy causes fabric to shrink on women.

I am not sure in what era was it that they actually wear chest popping dress like you see in epic movies like in the Other Boleyn Girl for example. Really when it is cold, not wearing proper jacket to cover my chest will make me cough profusely. Let alone chest popping dress with cape which does not cover much. But I suppose that's me.

Anyway, i bought some velvet fabric, a simple black silver lace and designed a simple abaya and send it to the tailor (because I cannot sew). And taraaaa Sya got herself a "Roman" lady of the court dress.

And not only in the old times they wore modest loose dress, no way in those times they wear pants, they also wore head covering. Which makes this theme a very easy one to do.

For extra accessories I got her some silver (fake) and black bracelets. And long silver (fake) necklace with dangling bits which I used as her waist belt .

Sya loves the dress. I love it too.

And it was made long enough, so Insya Allah boleh buat baju raya. Ahaks!
