The bodice comes from an under-dress worn on the Greek island of Telos. Traditionally, the under-dress would have had full skirts gathered at the waist and long full sleeves gathered at the top onto a dropped shoulder seam. Above it, the woman would wear a sleeveless over-dress, which would have allowed the characteristic green stripes of the bodice to be seen.
