Simple as 123 top

London, United K...






I have been dreaming at an ancient Greek style top/dress for a while. Then I have started dreaming about the Turkish holiday, and I don’t know how, but watching Mixtlii’s Puff Puff Puff skirt it all became clear.
A simple top/dress with a navy blue long belt. Perfect as a dress for my Turkish vacation and casual with jeans as a top.
When I’ll come back from vacation I’ll put some pictures from Turkey for inspiration. It is said that the name of turquoise color comes from Turkey, from the beautiful blue they have (ex. The Blue Mosque in Istanbul). I don’t know if that’s true but it’s interesting.
Simple as 123, I’ll soon put some instructions.

Material Notes

very light blue chiffon (I have put it in 2 instead of lining)
navy blue cotton




Garment Type
Beach, Bohemian, Casual, Ethnic, Romantic
Chiffon, Cotton

    Love the colour combination and the versatility of this dress! Could it be the new ‘infinity dress’? I wonder!

      Thank you for your comment.
      It can be the “new infinity dress”. I like very much the idea of having more ways of wearing something.
