Ancient Roman Costume

The Roman Empire spanned nearly 700 years, so fashion changed a great deal. The date for your Roman Day is 60 A.D. Children wore miniature copies of adult clothes, which, because of the hot climate, were made of cool, light, white or pastel fabrics such as cotton or silk.Tunics were normal every-day wear – togas were only worn on special or formal occasions. The tunic was belted around the waist, often with cord, and both men and women would have worn sandals or gone barefoot. (Sandals are not provided).

The boy’s costume has a tunic made from white cotton or poly-cotton. This is a natural fabric and slight imperfections are quite normal. The girl’s costume is made from pastel coloured poly-cotton. The ribbon stripes are colourfast and both costumes are machine-washable. The cloak and palla are made mainly of wool or other natural fibres (eg linen) and are probably better hand-washed. For safety reasons buttons are used to fasten the cloak rather than brooches. Girls could wear a headband over the forehead. Costume colours will vary.
