According to Terry, many of the traditional togas had trims.
Take the toga praetexta for example , this was a white toga with a purple trim. The trim he tells me was about 3 inches wide.
I like adding trims to my toga's and we will discuss how to do this in more detail in a later post.
You don't have to stick with tradition though -you can select whatever color you like - I always like golds, silvers or reds - anything really that makes my toga look sumptuous.
If you want to add a trim my advice is to either buy ready made trims from a craft store or buy a piece of cotton fabric and sew (eww the dreaded 's' word) or iron on. I have used ribbons in the past, and found them expensive, so I would avoid these at all costs. Some of the ready-made trims can be pricey too, but they more than make-up for it in glamor!
