I loved the colours of this shower curtain as soon as I saw it and I think it was only $3.99 with a 30% off on top. I hemmed and hawed about what I would make out of this and then remembered that I always disliked my swimsuit coverup because it is made out of t-shirt material and sticks to me when my swimsuit is still damp. So I thought I could use this shower curtain in a new way.
Here is the original shower curtain.
Here is the dress that I used as my pattern,
Here is the final dress. It was an incredibly easy sew. I used the original curtain hem as the hem of my dress, so no hemming involved. I cut out the curtain around my original dress. Then zigzagged all the raw edges as it is a highly fraying fabric. Then it was just a matter of stitching up the shoulder and side seams before hemming the arm holes and neck hole. I quite like that I was able to match the pattern in the front and show off the beautiful pattern and colours. I think I may also be able to wear this dress with a white slip underneath as a regular dress, I will have to see if it works. Hope you like my quick refashion. Cheers, Michele
