Yes, you read the title correctly; I started with a thrifted Shower Curtain When I saw it in the store, the fringed valance really caught my eye… so, this project starts with cutting off that funky fringed valance!
I knew I wanted to have a lavender tier next, so I went through my T shirt stash, and found one… then cut off the bottom 14″… as you can see, I cut it on a diagonal and sewed it up, because I wanted to have a bit of a dip in the back… you’ll see how it comes together in a few more steps :)
Now I had to decide what color I wanted for the top of my dress…. oh, decisions… decisions….
Some of you may disagree, but I selected the light blue one from J Crew... I just liked the way it looked next to the lavender… I cut the bottom half-ish off of the tank...
Then I pinned my two pieces together, and sewed it up with a zigzag stitch so it could stretch.
And here you have how that looked… see how that “dip” is working?
The next thing I had to do was to gather the top edge of my shower curtain valance so that it would fit right with the bottom of the lavender section… so I measured, gathered, and sewed them together! Woo Hoo, it’s getting there!
Here’s what I’ve got so far:
Now, if you know me at all, you know that I can’t just leave it at that. hahaha … I had to embellish it somehow… I decided to make – you guessed it — a fabric “flower”! … and sew it to a safety pin so it could be used wherever it was needed :) I finished it with an adorable vintage sunflower button…
So here you have it… my new Shower Curtain Creation :) This was fun!!! And I’m really liking the little dip in the back!
