A while ago I uploaded some doodles, that I did as part of a research for the Eros and Psyche project, about ancient greek hairstyles. So I thought I'd share some dress doodles I did as well.

They are all 100% accurate (drawn off vases of the era written above each dress) so feel free to use them as reference!

you can find the ones about hairstyles

Do you know which vase you used for the 4th century BC one? I'd like to know for a school project.

Nice. Now I won't have to keep going back and forth when looking up what the Greeks wore all those years ago. Got any other designs from around the world?

I love how the material flows. It may be a doodle, but it's fun to observe!

This is a concise yet excellent work, wit hthe peplos, chiton, and hemation all represented most finely! The variation in styles will also help me with a certain little story I'm writing...

These are lovely! I wish there was a way to find the name of the style-dresses. I believe the one from 340-330 BC is called a chiton, but that's about it. :D
