A while ago, LD and I got curtains for our bedroom from target. They are these sheer soft linen things which we decided after two months, wasn’t really the look we were going for in our bedroom. So after returning all of the unopened curtains, I now have two blue and two grey curtains that are 50″ by 84″ that I have to figure out what to do with.
As you know, I am never one to waste perfectly usable items. I love the color of the blue ones so I am thinking about turning them into a dress for some of our summer weddings, but I have never patterned a dress before. Any sewing masters out there have any suggestions?
For anyone wondering, here are the curtains. I have successfully completed other basic sewing projects in the past, but have never been successful with real clothes. Here is the bag I made recently for a friend’s birthday that I am very proud of:
I am getting a lot better at sewing than I mentioned a while back. Seriously, if you want some comedy, go back and read that post. However, I still feel like a major novice and think I might have bigger dreams than I can possibly accomplish. However, with fabric that needs to get used or tossed, I can’t go too wrong, right? I guess as soon as I’m feeling better, I will dive in head first. Wish me luck!
