Description

I feel just like one of the Von Trapp children in this dress, not just because its of a similar shape and pattern but its also made out of a curtain!
I used a vintage vogue pattern for this that a friend lovingly loaned me. It didn’t turn out at all like the picture but I love it none the less. It has princess seams in front and double darts in the back and fits like a glove, as long as I refrain from eating to much cake whilst wearing it.
The fabric is 100% cotton and quite lightweight for a curtian. I got it off ebay for only $4! The pattern and the colours are so vibrant they make me want to twirl and sing like maria!

    Envy, envy, envy. I’ve always wanted a Von Trapp outfit! It’s lovely! Just like Brigitta’s (or Louisa. Who can remember which one’s which?)

    So cute and it fits so well! I would never imagine it was a curtain, but the Von Trapp reference makes me love it that much more!

    Very cute! I’d never have guessed it was a curtain.
