Description

This is a top I made from Butterwick pattern 5354. The pattern is made for knits, but I made this top from cotton (the pleats look all scruncy in the shirt detail pic cuz I was taking my own picture). The skirt is vintage barkcloth and was formerly a valance in my bedroom (hence the Scarlett O’Hara reference). No pattern on the skirt. I made a wide waist band and I planned to just gather the skirt but the fabric was too thick and stiff. Instead, I made pleats all around. It is lots of fun to wear and mostly fun to say I am wearing my curtains.

    I think they work really well together, and the skirt looks fab considering you used no pattern!

      Thanks so much. That curtain has still been on the rod in my garage for almost a year. It was about time to give it some glory!

    I’ve seen lots of sheets and curtains turned into some type of garment, but most look so-so, or still look remind of its original state. Yours, however, is quite lovely!

      Thank you very much. I like to think it looks Anthropolgie-ish. And I love that store, just not the prices.
