Queens, New York...
The name comes from the fact that I made this dress out of a pair of curtains (green curtains even!). Even though it’s not nearly as involved as it’s namesake.
It was originally two vintage curtains (the fabric looks kinda 60s or 70s) I found at a charity shop. They had the ruffle at the bottom and I was able to preserve that as the hem of the dress. The top I just shirred to make it fit.
