Jennie, I spoke to you on the phone about my Edwardian white lingerie dress that I’d made from an embroidered fine batiste shower curtain. I used your 1914 Afternoon Dress pattern. I purchased the shower curtain at Target from their Shabby Chic collection. The ladies in your sales booth at Costume College just loved it.

One of the very first dresses I ever made was from a sheet, and I love Valarie’s clever use of a beautiful shower curtain to make her dress! Fantastic work, Valarie!

Share the love!

      Hi, Kim! You can find the Shabby Chic embroidered curtain panels on eBay, too!
