At the heart of the Greek garment is clothing thatwore representatives of the fair sex in Ancient Greece. It is a chiton, which is an elongated rectangular canvas. The product is made of linen or woolen cloth, wrapped around the body from left to right and snaps on the shoulders with buckles - fibulae. Above, the work was draped with an ornamented hymn. Often it is in the culture of ancient Greece that famous couturiers seek their inspiration. For example, Vera Wong, Alberta Feretti, Badgley Mishka, Manuel Mota and others. Based on Hellenic motives, the Spanish company Pronovias produces collections of wedding dresses, which are famous all over the world. A feature of modern antique motifs is an asymmetrical armhole on one shoulder. A characteristic feature of Greek products is multilayered. From the color scheme - predominate white, gold and silver. Mostly Greek clothes are made of such materials: air chiffon, organza, tulle. Often the style of the Greek product is combined with the style of Empire, while harmoniously complementing and enriching each other with ideas. Empire absorbed the simplicity of ancient culture and their sophistication. It is impossible to imagine a Greek outfit without specific patterns. Basically, they decorate the girdle, as well as the bodice and the fibula. Traditional Greek patterns are "palmettes", "meander", "incoming waves", "bud of lotus", "ionics". The Greek dress helps a woman to change into a mythical goddess, making the image feminine, skilfully emphasizing the beauty of the forms. Strengthen the effect will help an elegant hairstyle in the style of the Greek goddess. Below we will consider 3 ways of tailoring the Greek dress. First you need to choose the right material. It can be muslin, satin, silk, jersey, slim jersey, velvet. Matter must be airy and fluid, it should easily fit into folds, and not very crumple. If you pick up such a matter, which does not crumple edges on the cut, then you do not have to further process the edges. The length of the canvas should be at least three meters. The first method of sewing dresses in the Greek style. To create a pattern, you need 3 meters of fabric and fantasy. Tape the pins on your shoulders with ribbons, and then attach two more pins at the waist or under the bust. This is a simplified scheme for creating a Greek outfit. With the slightest wind, the dress will open, so it is recommended to put on such a dress on the beach over the bathing suit. In order for the outfit to be worn somewhere else besides the beach, it is necessary to sew the sash of the dress along the right side from the bottom up. Ultimately, you will get an exquisite outfit. The presented model is good in the sense that it does not fit the body at all, but nevertheless skillfully emphasizes all the dignity of a woman, and seductively streams through the body. The second method of sewing a Greek dress. Famous French fashion designer Madame Gre sewed unique dresses in the Greek style, draping them on the model body with her own hands. Her method of sewing an antique product became classic. Her clients were Jacqueline Kennedy, Marlene Dietrich, Barbara Streisand and other famous women. What you need to buy to make a pattern of Greek dress: 1) Matter. The canvas should be slightly larger than 2 of your heels from the heels to the shoulders (this is necessary for sewing the dress up to the floor). 2) Decorative tape. Its length should be such that it was enough to wrap itself under the chest and at the waist twice. If the preparations are finished, then you can start sewing the dress. Spread the canvas on the floor, find the middle and draw the line with chalk. The resulting line will lie on the shoulders. In the center, you need to make a hole for the head, so draw a perpendicular line (about 15 centimeters to begin with) and cut it with scissors. Put a head in the hole. Now you need to decide to what level you need to deepen the neckline. Mark on the tissue shallow that level of depth of the cutout, which you ultimately want to get. Take off the dress, again lay it on the floor, draw a special line to the required mark and cut the cutout to the end. On the shoulder lines, take the fabric with pins. Tie a ribbon under the bust, nona on top of the fabric,and under it, right on the body. Pins lay the canvas in the folds, pin to the ribbon, drape one breast, then the other. Similar actions are carried out with ribbons at the waist. Now, when the picture of the future product is clear, and it completely suits you, then you can start sewing large stitches folds to the tape, with one taking out the pins. It does not matter, the stitches will be oblique or curved, after all, one more ribbon or braid will be sewn on top. So, the front of the dress is ready. You can also do the rear as well as the front, but add only a cutout and two ribbons. Or you can show your imagination and play with the drapery. The figure shows as many as three waysdraperies, but the third method is the most original. It is called a "rocker". The result is achieved by taking the left and right edges of the matter into the upper region, without touching the middle. Therefore, to achieve this result on the back of the dress will need 1-2 meters more cloth. Do not forget that the dress should somewhere be buttoned and unbuttoned. It is best to do this from the side, sew on one button at the ends of the ribbon of the front half of the dress, and make the eyelets at the ends of the ribbons of the back part.
