Summer Military Top

Added Aug 31, 2016

by Elpida Kyriakou

Athens, Greece






I don’t like military print but the color shades of this one looked cool and summery. The project turned out more complicated than I had expected and I’m not satisfied with the result. Maybe the fabric was too stiff….
Anyway, its style somehow matched my adventurous summer holidays.
Last photos from my beloved, wild Samothrace, with the goats feeding on the seaside…

    You did a really nice job on this and the fabric is sporty. The fact that it is a little stiffer is not a detriment and it looks wonderful on you. I have a love/hate relationship with halters in general. I love how they enhance the shoulders and back, but for the more busty people (like me) uncomfortable because of the strap behind the neck.

    Very cool! Like you, I am not a fan of camouflage prints but this one is lovely! Well done! Philo

    What a nice top. You’ve turned the military fabric in a wearable summer top.

    I liked the top in the magazine but wasn’t sure it fits well because of the back. I see you managed to keep it on the spot and the back doesn’t wrinkle and fold at all. Very beautiful and neat.

    Ελπίδα το μπλουζάκι σου πάει πολύ ωραία…. και σαν σχέδιο και σαν χρώματα. Και εγώ δεν είμαι λάτρης του military look ομως εδώ τα χρώματα είναι πολύ ωραία , κολακευτικά…. θα έλεγα ότι έχει και ένα στύλ σαφάρι! Πολύ ωραίες φωτογραφίες, ταιριαστές.

    Oh you look so nice. It seems the simple pattern sometimes can be a challenge. My dear you did it & the result is lovely.

    Πολύ γλυκό αυτό το μπλουζάκι Ελπίδα. Μου άρεσε και μένα αυτό το πατρόν…Συμφωνώ και μαζί σου και για το μιλιτέρ αν και αυτό έχει όμορφα παστέλ χρώματα και εκ πρώτης όψεως δεν καταλαβαίνεις ότι είναι παραλλαγή. Πάντως ταιριάζει πολύ με το τοπίο, έχεις δίκιο!

    Only you can make the military printed fabric to look so tender and pretty ! I like how it fits you and could not see anything to be "not sutisfied " , as you sed . Very nice pictures again, ithe Samotraki must be great place to go next summer !

    This top is really cute and your outfit is lovely, military prints are normally a no go for me too but I like this one the pastel blue makes it look really feminine.
