Hey everyone!  This is my first time posting a project and I'm not sure if I have the picture posting right, but here goes.

I had these curtains in my kitchen that I loved, but they were mismatched and I made some new ones.  I couldn't bear to get rid of them, so I did the Scarlet thing and made a dress for my daughter.

This was the curtain panel

Here is a close-up.  There is a sheer material on top with embroidered sunflowers.

And this is the dress

I still have to add some straps, but she can't wear it till next spring so I'll fit them to her then.  I'm also not too crazy about the ruffle at the top, I might change it.  She loves it though, so that's all that matters!  All comments are welcome!

What a pretty summer dress! I can see why you wanted to use the fabric again, it's really neat.

Coffy or bouncy, it's all the same at the bottom of the river.
