My Greek Goddess Tunica Jurk

Added Sep 8, 2008

Enschede, Nether...






I made this dress a couple of months ago, for my little son Catholic Bapthism. Everything was white and golden, the decoration, the cake and favors, so I decided to make a special dress for that occassion using the same pattern colors.
I love greek mythology, and I have this kind of tunica in mind years and years ago.
As you can see, I’ve used again my old bedroom curtains for the skirt. I love the cut design at the edge of this fabric. I used Burda Pattern, dress 105 december 2007 just for the back and front skirt. I made the upper front part without any pattern just drapping and drapping the fabric on my body to adjust it perfectly to the armband.
I found those perfect flat armband in H&M (2X 7 euro) the perfect shape and color. I found the chain at Verstegh, plastic gold chain (25 euro). Satin as lining and a white and golden trim for the seams.
I really love this dress, some could find it “too much” but to me is just perfect. For taking this pictures I used the petticoat I made for my polka dots dress.

Material Notes

chiffon, 1 mts. satin, zipper, 1 flat armband, golden chain (about 40 cms)

    You know white color is my weakness. But this dress is a killer one!! You look breathtaking. This summer I did something similar and still didn’t post it :( It is white too with golden chain but not so wide as yours. Your dress is very cool! That’s my favorite!

    Gorgeous dress, indeed! Golden details and draped upper front really give it ancient Greek look. You look like a goddess :).
