New Curtains

"You have to make sure that the tone of your dress was not the same tone as the curtains" ~Julie Harris

Well, I say rules are meant to be broken.

I made curtains out of the fabric I cut for a dress, McCall's 6554.

The fabric for the curtain look different hanging on the bedroom window.

It actually looks better in person. The bedroom wall is painted yellow with a marble effect. And the print on the fabric reminds me of these beautiful flowers that grew all over the Azorean island I visited many moons ago.

I love this print so much I just had to cut a dress out of it too. Is that bad?


  1. I think that's awesome! And if it's really a problem (which I don't see why it should be), at least the curtains are in your bedroom.

  2. Not bad at all ! Beautiful print, it will be a lovely summer dress.
