You may remember back in November I was working on costumes for Les Miserables. I mentioned the fabric resources the thrift stores sometimes have. During a crazy moment I took down my bedroom curtain and made a skirt. Sorry I don't have a photo. But I thought it was time I got a new curtain.
I live in the country and this is the view from my bedroom window. There's no real reason for a curtain for privacy, but this window faces East. Soon the summer sun will be waking me early and heating up the room.
This is what I used for a curtain all winter. I'm a bit embarrassed to show you as all I did was throw the fabric up there and pin it. Just lazy, no other word for it.
Pretty sad, but I do love the rayon batik fabric. So I looked in my closet and found 2 more pieces. None are the same, but I am only making a temporary curtain. My goal for my room is shutters. Ah, that's another story.
So with some help from my cat I started the new curtain.
Yesterday, I had a class on corset making. It was good fun with four other corset minded women including Jerrie the teacher. We measured and cut and sewed up a sample. Mine fit! Hooray. Next time we'll be making the real thing with boning, stays, satin and lace. I look forward to it.
Until next time, joy!
