|It's curtains for you!|
Not that I haven't used old curtains for costumes in the past:
|The underskirt of my blue Renaissance gown was once a curtain.|
Of course, the curtains I found at Meijer are probably not as high quality as the ones at Lowe's. All of the ones I saw were 100% polyester, instead of cotton. So it all depends on how historically accurate you want to be with your fiber content.
I found two styles that were on clearance, and I almost bought them - but I'm currently trying to purge my stash of fabric that I'll never use, not add to it. I did take a couple pics on my phone, though.
|This was a beautiful solid deep red - and what a price! ($2.78/yard)|
|The color looks terrible on my phone, but it was a dark gold with leafy vine embroidery. ($4.72/yard)|
|The photo does not do it justice.|
|Who doesn't see plaid like this and think of hoop skirts?|
But this is all just a dream for now. I'm still not allowing myself to buy any fabric for a new project until I've completed an old project. Guess I need to do more sewing!
