Chiton, greek dress

Greek clothes were very easy to make and to put on.
They were usually just made from a single piece of rectangular material, with no special shaping and very little sewing.
The most common piece of clothing worn by men and women was like a loose-fitting tunic, It had various names, but the most usual are peplos and chiton. Over this a heavier tunic or cloak could also be worn; the cloak was called a himation.
