As requested, her is my entry on my Greek costume, a do-it-yourself project I made late last year. My elder daughter's classroom teacher required them to wear a goddess-inspired dress for their reading recital so I pushed myself to sew it, with love of course. Apparently, I had no choice because a ready to wear goddess costume wasn't easy to find. Majority of my daughter's classmates had their costume customized for them.
Here is a photo of the materials I used.
The end product of my DIY project and the inspiration.

I am satisfied with the outcome of this project. My daughter's costume was very close to its inspiration. Paired with white and gold sandals and a headband, she looked so pretty just like a real Greek or Roman goddess wearing it. She sang and danced gracefully in her costume in the tune of a lively music featuring instruments like, if I'm not mistaken, B3 Guitars and Pulse drums. Sorry for the quality of the photos though. We came a bit late so we didn't have time to adjust the camera settings for the dark venue.
What do you think about do-it-yourself projects like this? Have you tried making your own costume before? Did you save money by doing it?
