Open Sided Doric Chiton

Open Sided Doric Chiton

This dress is thought to be an earlier version of the peplos and is found on many vase paintings and pieces of sculpture up to the end of the first century A.D. This dress is open on one side, so it is not symmetrical like our Doric Chiton. This style was popular in Laconia (Sparta), but it was considered indecent by the rest of the inhabitants of Peloponnesus.

This dress is pinned at the top (pins NOT included), and can be pulled up to be worn as a shorter skirt.

We also offer several lengths of the fold; the measurement from your shoulder to the bottom of the top layer of the garment. (12 inch flap shown on mauve chiton) Use a string and measure the string if you don't have a tape measure.

The Chiton falls to about floor length and allows for a slight amount of "blousing" at the waist.

This dress is worn open on one side, usually the right. It is not sewn in a tube like our Doric or Ionic Chiton.

For more modesty it can be worn over a short or long sleeve Underdress or a Drawstring Skirt.

Made from natural cotton muslin, cotton gauze or polycotton fabric.

You can also add Trim to the top, open side and bottom.

Belt not included.

Please provide your measurements from elbow to elbow and height.
