The "Chillin' With My Shroomies" - Dress

Added Feb 29, 2012

by kerstika

Berlin, Germany






So… a bit over a year ago I cut up my mother’s curtains to make my second ever dress! It was fun! (First one’s here on my blog: The Colour Blocking 101-Dress )

I absolutely adore this pattern, but I made a few changes anyway:

1) a shorter skirt
2) French seams
3) crochet lace <3
4) cut out back with mushroom-fabric-covered buttons
5) no facing around the neckline – only around the cut out in the back
6) almost-sweetheart neckline

If you’re interested, there are a few more pictures in my brandspanking new blog !!

Material Notes

My mother’s cotton curtain (red), cotton mushroom fabric, crochet lace, a zipper, two buttons

    Klasse Teil. Die Danielle steht schon so lange auf meiner To-Do-Listem aber irgendwie habe ich noch nicht den richtigen Stoff gefunden. Schade, dass meine Mutter nur Jalousien hat ;-)

    I love your version! :) Especially the back. Perhaps I’ll give it a try, too.

    Very nice! It’s quite courageous to make so many alterations I think, but it worked out well!

      Thanks! And cutting into the finished dress was scary indeed! :)

    Nice dress. I like it how you teamed it up. Has your mum got many curtains left after you get your hands on them lol:-D

      Thanks! Haha, her new curtains are beige… I wonder if the fact that I hate wearing beige has anything to do with her choice ;-)

      Thank you! The back was a spur-of-the-moment idea. I felt so brave, cutting into a finished dress :) Thanks!
