"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?
