What a beautiful classic Grecian drape! You figured out your inspiration will, and with the right bottom piece, the proportion will be perfecto. You've got to come up with a few bottoms that complement it for color and shape. Do you wear slim skirts to the ankle? You'll need some kind of opening or wrap for walking ease. Maybe in an earth tone- a deep olive or black with matching hosiery and shoes. I'd go for a heel. In the photo, the sheer fabric, says to me a camisole underneath is something to consider. Great result!

Wonderful top, you did a great job interpreting the RTW inspiration, the draping is lovely.

Oops, I forgot to mention that a photo flash will give you X-ray vision if a fabric is the slightest bit sheer. Not a problem in real life, thank goodness. And a slim maxi skirt would be ideal. I have a black one but can easily make one in another colour.

Stunning! The fabric is awesome...these thin drapey fabrics used in a simple design can be so tricky to manage. Brava!

You are so clever to have figured out how to make this from the shonmodern picture. Love it with the skirt-- I happen to be a brown and black fan, so I would wear it as is. Maybe break into the piggy bank to buy some of the Trippen shoes to go with it!

Looks fab with the narrow skirt...great design idea with many more possibilities. Keep them coming!

Now with that slim black maxi, you look even more like a goddess! Thanks for going the extra steps of changing out the beige pants. It's instructive to see the new look itself and then letting us see the comparison. Wowser! Which is not to say I don't like the beige full pants. Do you have a good companion for them?

Wendy, they are another pair of beach pants I haven't worn much and I think they will be made into harems too. Just need to figure out if I just put elastic in the hems or do something a bit more interesting. They will look fine with a tunic to knee level or longer.

What a perfect style choice for the fabric - it really takes wonderful advantage of the drape. The whole outfit, with the long slim skirt and boots, looks terrific.
