Curtain Caller Dress

Added Jul 22, 2013

Saw this lovely curtain fabric at the fabric shop and could not leave it…I call it the “Curtain Caller Dress” because it was practically calling my name.

It has vertical lines and to show off these lines I design a very plain dress with a wow factor at the back. It has a round neckline, 3/4 length sleeve with elastic and a single bow decor detailing at the back.. There is no zipper closure and I use nylon jersey for underlining.

The fabric has a very rich creamy look and so the style is very comfortable and stylish.

Really love the look and glad I answer to the calling. Based on the lighting it tends to look white but it is really cream.

What do you think was it worth it?

    I love it! The stripe really does make it so beautiful and yet still simple and classic.

    lovely dress kisses, it fits you perfectly and the backs gorgeous. it is indeed very rich looking and so chic. i bought a single bed quilt plus different length curtains in a charity shop last friday for £5. so far i made curtains out of the cover and cushion covers out of the longer curtain. the short ones going to be a dress for a family day out to.morr. i do love a ruffle and you have done this perfectly x
