Flowy like the river...

Added Jul 24, 2017

by Elpida Kyriakou

Athens, Greece






I’ve worn this jumpsuit more than any other garment this summer…It’s breezy, flowy, comfortable….
When I saw the fabric I thought of lights mirroring in the dark water…I tried to keep that feeling of flowing water, so I cut the top pieces in bias direction in order not to interrupt the flow along the bust!
It’s a pity that rivers in Greece don’t have much water this time of the year…

    Υπέροχη φόρμα Ελπίδα! Και το ύφασμά της είναι εκπληκτικό! Έχει ωραία χρώματα και κάνει τη φόρμα πολύ εντυπωσιακή. Ελπίζω να πέρασες όμορφα στο χωριό σου! Τη Μήδεια είδες στο θέατρο; Ήθελα να πάω και εγώ αλλά με τον μικρό είναι αδύνατο… Έχω εκτίμησει δεόντως αυτές τις απολαύσει…

      Ευχαριστώ Μαρία….Ναι τη Μήδεια είδα την Κυριακή…Πολύ ωραία ήταν. Μάθαμε ότι το Σάββατο στην πρεμιέρα έγινε χαμός όταν κάποιος θεατής φώναξε “Φίδι” και διακόπηκε η παράσταση για να το βρουν …Προφανώς δεν το βρήκαν….Όταν έχουμε μικρά όλες τα ίδια κάνουμε…Δεν πειράζει, τα καλύτερα έρχονται!

    I love jumpsuits and noticed this one straight away when I first got the mag. You have done a fantastic version, that fabric is wonderful and I totally understand why you like to wear it so much:-)) And your photos really show it off perfectly, even if there isn’t too much water :-))

      Thank you my friend! Actually I wanted to take the photos by the sea, at night, but “my personal photographer” is very negative recently….

    I always enjoy the way you play with the fabric. Great idea to cut the top in biais. I like the “wavy” result!

    You’ve created a lovely drape on this – it’s gorgeous. And it’s a jumpsuit for all seasons, I would suggest. Well, in Greece, anyway!

    Wow, wow, wow! I put an eye on this pattern and also bought this Burda issue, but your version is much better than the magazine realization in plain fabric! The pattern is for tall sizes. Did you do any alterations?

      Thank you very much! Actually I need tall sizes but I don’t think that resizing is a big issue in this case as the fit is quit loose. Just cut 2cm from the bottom line of the top pieces.
