Romantic Ruffled Curtain





This curtain panel is made from heavy linen.
 I bleached it to take the color down a notch.
Worked like a charm, but first I did a small sample in the sink.
Then I added a shabby ruffle on the leading edge.
This faile embroidered fabric has silver polka dots.
It is the same fabric I used on the vanity skirt.
I get to be more creative and less traditional when I create a 
window treatment for my own home. 
I love the ruffles Sissie from Sissie's Shabby Cottage
 puts on her pillows that are just cut strips with no finished edges. 
Its farmhouse chic!
The panel is unlined with the exception of the top where I have the
polka dotted fabric for a peek a boo cuff accent.
Its hard to describe how airy and pretty this bathroom is looking.
I'd love to make some of these for Barbra Streisand's home, any of them!
I think she would love them as much as I do.
This soft shabby ruffled panel is so romantic that I had to add a candelabra.
A jacuzzi soak and a glass of wine is calling my name....

Ahhhhh.....
Hand me a towel darling!

  3. Hi Amy,
    If you are soaking in your gorgeous tub right now, then I say....you go Darling!

    I absolutely am in love with your gorgeous panel and the ruffles are devine! I mean, devine!!!! I may just have to borrow this lovely idea. I have a huge window over my tub with plantation shutters and it's begging for fabric.

    Thanks for the mention, I'm so honored. I do love me some ruffles and I always like taking the short cut and giving them the shabby look.

    hugs
    Sissie

  8. Hi Amy~ Beautiful drape! I love the soft, muted color of it and the ruffles are the icing on the cake! A soak in a hot tubby with a glass of wine sounds INCREDIBLE~ what a relaxing evening! :)

  9. Wonderful window curtain, the color is so pretty and the drape of it covers the fact that the window is off-set from the tub. No one would ever know. You are so clever.

  14. I like the addition of the ruffle to the drape. To answer your question on my stools. I purchased the needlepoint tops on ebay, bought some at garage sales and made some. Terry
