First Post...

Well it's the first post of this blog, and I can already tell I'm going to be horrible about regularly updating.  I think procrastination is so deeply embedded in my DNA that I even put off personal projects that I've decided to do.
Speaking of which....

I'm trying my hand at creating a skirt out of my old curtains and a 1950's vintage pattern.  With any luck I'll have all four pieces cut out by September. heh.

here's the pattern:

and here's the fabric from my curtains (I bought them one of my favorite stores, Anthropologie, but they did an awful job of keeping the light out):


  1. I bet it will be a great skirt...once you get it done.
    I'm the same, I have lots and lots of never ending projects in my closet. But I do finish some of them eventually :)

  2. The fabric looks lovely. I either think of 'The Sound of Music' or 'Gone With the Wind' when I think of someone making clothes out of curtains. Hehe.
