Grecian Holiday

This design was inspired by an upcoming trip to Greece. The client wanted a dress that was easy to pack and wear, but would be cool enough when it got really hot =)

So, what would a Grecian goddess wear? How about a simple A-line dress with Greek details?

To replicate the drape and style of the ancient Greeks, I modified the shoulder strap to look like it had been tied. I added ribbons at the bustline to add definition and some more details.

To finish it off, I added a Greek style stitch at the neckline and at the hemline in a gold tone thread.

I'm hoping the client enjoys this dress as much as I enjoyed making it for her. And that she sends me pictures of her in Greece wearing it =)
