The dress in the Greek style always remains at the peakfashion. Tender, flowing, very feminine .... Each woman in such a dress will look like a luxurious hetaera, at the feet of which the whole world is spread. Our video dress patterns will help you sew such an outfit. So, let's start with the choice of fabric. The fabric should belight, thin, able to fit into deep soft folds and, at the same time, do not crumble very much. Determine under what circumstances you are going to wear this dress. If you need an easy free dress for walking around the city on a hot summer evening - choose muslin, satin or thin jersey. For more solemn occasions, luxury silk or royal velvet is more suitable. The length of the tissue cut must be at least three meters. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvG58CsDqDc Going to sewing There are 2 ways of sewing dresses in the Greek style. Both of them are simple, but effective. Which one you choose - it's up to you. The first way In this version, we cut out the fabric4 equal rectangles. If you dream of a dress that is the length of a floor, then the length of the rectangle should be slightly larger than your height. In other cases, choose the necessary dress length yourself. We connect the two rectangles together with a beautiful knot (this will be the area of the shoulders) and we spend it on the typewriter. The same is done with the other two rectangles. The waist line can be attached with a thin belt, a beautiful ribbon or simply stitching, then the fabric will very nicely fall down. The second way We take a rectangle whose lengtha little more than your height, multiplied by two (with a dress length in the floor). Exactly in the middle of the rectangle there will be a line of shoulders, dividing the fabric into the front part and back. In the center, parallel to the long sides of the rectangle, the neck of the desired length is cut out. Remember: the longer the neck, the deeper will be your neckline! Better, for starters, cut centimeters 15, put a piece of cloth over your head and on yourself roughly measure the neckline of the depth you need. You can make a cutout to the waist, and then wrap it around with ribbons. Alternatively, you can rest on a shallow neckline and tie it up with a ribbon under your chest. Then the fabric will flow right under the breast. In order for the folds to turn out to be beautiful, it is recommended to gently pin them with pins. When you find a suitable option for yourself, stitch with a strong stitch. The fabric on the shoulders can simply be picked up, or collected with decorative brooches. We spend lateral seams. Drapery of Greek dress - very creativeoccupation. You can create dozens of new ways of draping, for example, in front of the dress prisborit one method, and the back - another. In short, complete freedom of creativity and flight of your imagination! Remember that the Greek style has never been extravagant and artsy, so observe the measure. Be guided by the image of Ancient Greece: noble, simple, feminine and fragile. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OERJrTiyke0 Designers are very fond of playing with Greek silhouettes. For example, Valentino and Elie Saab create in their collections a long dress in Greek style with one naked shoulder. A straight silhouette with an overstated waist, a pleated hemline - the contrast on the asymmetry produces a stunning effect. The house of Shanel and Kenzo offers Greek dresses from chiffon with a drapery on the chest crosswise, vertical folds and shiny brooches. Create your own image of the Greek goddess. A simple and very feminine dress made of fine flowing pastel shades is perfect for summer relaxation. Supplement the image with sandals with thin straps, thread beads of pearls and loose hair - and before you is the young Aphrodite, just born of sea foam. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWl5hjbJyLc The second image is more suitable for evening dress. A long dress in a floor from a natural silk ruby or black, gold bracelets on thin wrists, a necklace with precious stones on the neck and a high royal hairdo - and you yourself Getera Athena, before whom the Greek ruler himself bowed. Be delightful in your Greek outfits created by our patterns of dresses videos.
