Impressionistic floral top

Added Jul 11, 2017

by Elpida Kyriakou

Athens, Greece






This is a very simple top. However, I’d been waiting for the July issue just for this one. I like the fact that there are two different ways to wear it. I really needed an edgy pattern for this impressionistic painting print so that the result wouldn’t look too romantic…

Photos are from Berlin. I was there at the end of June . It was cold and rainy but I had an amazing time and I fell in love with that city with the “heavy” history and the numerous different faces….However, I don’t have many “project photos”…That’s the price for not travelling with my husband :D

      Hi! Are you back from Japan? I guess you’ll be busy sewing your japanese fabrics! Unfortunately, Fani’s photos from Berlin were a disaster so I can’t post more projects form Berlin. But I’ve sewn the two fabrics I bought there and I’ll post them soon. By the way, last Wednesday I received an offer in my e-mail : Air tickets for Berlin for 20 euros if you book by midnight! Waiting for you in Athens :-)

    Τέλειο μπλουζάκι Ελπίδα…Τι ωραίο το Βερολίνο ε; Από τις πιο ατμοσφαιρικές ευρωπαϊκές πόλεις που έχω επισκεφτεί! Καλοφόρετο! Σε φιλώ!

      Που είσαι Μαρία! Μόλις τώρα γύρισα από το χωριό στην Ήπειρο…Χθες βράδυ ήμουνα στη Δωδώνη στο θέατρο και σκεφτόμουνα μη σε δω πουθενά….Φιλιά στο μωράκι!

    Τι όμορφο μπλουζάκι Ελπίδα! Σου πάει πάρα πολύ και το έχεις συνδυάσει τέλεια με το παντελόνι που επίσης είναι πολύ όμορφο. Ωραίο πατρον, το είχα προσέξει και εγώ αυτό το μπλουζάκι στο περιοδικό . Μου αρέσει έτσι όπως το φοράς στις πρώτες φωτογραφίες .

    what an interesting pattern I love your fabric and how you’ve styled it with those pants, fantastic look :-))

    My husband hates it when we go anywhere cos he knows he’ll be asked to take pictures :-))

    What a fantastic fabric! Seems quite perfect for this top and I like that it can be styled differently.

    σήμερα μπήκα στο burda μόνο για σένα, λέω θα έχει ανεβάσει τίποτα το κορίτσι μας και να που σε βλέπω με αυτή την ωραία μπλούζα. Μ’αρεσει απίστευτα, τέλειο ύφασμα και πατρόν, όπως το φοράς όμως με τον ώμο έξω όχι με τον δεύτερο τρόπο. περιμένω να τα πούμε απο κοντα για το πως πέρασες Βερολίνο.

    This is a really lovely top elpida.The fabric suits the style perfectly. Love your photos. I was living in Berlin when the famous wall came down and I always said I’d go back for a visit. Xx
