Greek-style clothes - dresses, tunics, blouses - have been on the fashion catwalks for many years already.
True, the price of some models is quite high. If you are on a budget, don't be discouraged. Such clothes are good because it is very easy to sew them with your own hands, without any patterns. And sometimes you don't even need to sew!
How to sew a dress without a pattern? Easy!
So, we decided that cutting patterns from magazines and downloading from the Internet is not required. But what you can’t do without is, of course, fabric. You will also need scissors, matching threads, a few meters of braid or decorative tape, and a sewing machine. But even if it is not there, it does not matter, you can sew the dress by hand.
A few recommendations for choosing fabrics: they should be light, flowing, thin, so that the dress turns you into a real Greek goddess. If you want a long outfit, the cut of the material should be at least three meters, for a short dress, one and a half to two meters is enough.
So, the fabric was bought, with threadsstocked up, and now, in fact, about how to sew a dress in the Greek style. There are several ways.
The first way is the easiest. You don't even need to sew anything. You just need to take a piece of fabric, wrap yourself in it, forming beautiful draped folds, and pin the ends with pins or a decorative brooch on your shoulder. You can take a decorative braid and bandage the resulting dress under the bust. Ready! This is an ideal option for the beach - the dress is light, flying, seductively swings open with any gust of wind, showing off your tanned forms. If you want a more complete outfit, you can simply sew it on one side, from the armhole to the hem. And the ends of the other, again, stab on the shoulder. The image can be completed with matching accessories and shoes in the Greek style.
The next way to sew a dress without a pattern is not much more complicated than the previous one. We take a piece of fabric, lay it out on the floor. We find the middle and draw a line in small. This will be the shoulder line, from which the front and back of the dress will go in both directions. We find the middle of this line and draw a perpendicular line that goes on one side (back) less, and on the other (front) - more. This will be the cutout for the head.
Now you can try on the dress and, if necessary, deepen the neckline. In principle, it can be at least up to the waist. Then you need to pick up each side of the neckline on the shoulders and under the chest, fix the result with braided pins. You can place another braid at the waist. Let's try again. If then how arrangedfolds, suits you, you can sew on a braid or ribbon white.
The same can be done on the back. And you can leave the middle of the cutout to sag freely - make a "rocker". We sew the side seams, and on the side, at the ends of the ribbons, you can make a fastener with a button or Velcro.
The third way is suitable for you if you have a short tight strapless dress, but for some reason you don’t wear it. After reading the next paragraph, you will understand how to sew a dress without a pattern based on this slip.
Actually, everything is the same as before: we wrap ourselves in fabric over a tight short dress, form a beautiful drapery, pin or sew the ends on one shoulder. Separate folds are sewn with hidden stitches to the base dress. The fabric can be opaque or translucent - it all depends on the desired effect. If you do not have such a base, you can also sew it yourself, for example, from elastic knitwear. How to sew a knitted dress? Very simple - we simply sew a rectangle of the desired length and width along the side seam. Due to its elasticity, it will take the shape of your body.
Now you know how to sew a dress without a pattern in the Greek style. And with a little experimentation, you can create several outfits of different colors, shapes and lengths. We wish you creative success!
