Athens, Greece






Samothace is an extraordinary island BUT not the best place to show off my sewing creations. Nobody cares about clothing here, unconventional style dominates (the less you wear the better) and there are several nudists too. So, I had to conform!
The “dress” is just a rectangle with two holes. It was ready in an hour time, it’s not a masterpiece but it’s exactly what I needed to catch the spirit of the island.
Photos from “Vathres”, natural pools created by the mountain streams as they flow down the rocks and form little waterfalls. Swimming there is a great experience (if you manage to climp up there)…

      I highly recommend this pattern! I was sursrised that it doesn’t slip away, it stays in place and it makes me feel safe…
      I think that this one may be even better
      I just didn’t have that bracelet and I was travelling next morning!

    Ελπίδα το φόρεμα σου είναι τέλειο , το χρώμα και το στύλ αυτό σου πάνε πολύ! Ταιριαστό με το τοπίο της Σαμοθράκης, μυθικό!

    τι ωραία ιδέα είναι αυτή! θα ήθελα να το φτιάξω και εγώ για παρεό,απίστευτο πως φτιάχνεις φόρεμα από ένα ορθογώνιο κομμάτι ύφασμα με δυο τρύπες:) ελπίζω να τα πούμε σύντομα από κοντα, θέλω να ακούσω τα νέα σου από τη Σαμοθράκη.

    Totally agree about the water nymph! This color is so fantastic and matching the beautiful surrounding. It may be an easy piece but it’s so lovely on you!

    Το φόρεμα αυτό εκτός από όμορφο, είναι και σούπερ πρακτικό φαντάζομαι. Κάποτε έλεγα να το φτιάξω κ εγώ αλλά το παράτησα γιατί δεν έβρισκα ύφασμα να μου αρέσει για το συγκεκριμένο κομμάτι. Πιστεύω το χάρηκες στίς διακοπές σου! Υ.Γ: τα δύο τελευταία ρούχα που ανέβασες είναι μονόχρωμα, αν δεν κάνω λάθος…Πρόσεξέ το! Χαχα!
