Round Two!  EDIT! I made another curtain dress: Found at the bottom of this post!

So I love Batman. I have Batman boxers, T-shirts, sweaters, and wallets. I go gaga for anything with the (original) Dark Knight. Who doesn't? A hot hero in black leather? OMG.

Anyway, while wrist deep in the fabric bin at goodwill I sighted some awesome fabric.



I got geeked for a moment, then let it go. One single panel of curtain would make practically nothing for a chicka of my size. Then, low and behold! ANOTHER CURTAIN! OMG!!!! I danced about like a madman, er, woman, and bought them.

I am currently into retro outfits, pearls, crinoline, the whole nine yards. There is a pattern that I have wanted to use since I saw it floating about here on Craftster. This one:



This pattern is so EASY! It was a dream to make, I was so very happy with it. Anyway, Here is the final design! I will post more pictures when I take the professional photo shoot. Smiley SO Whatcha think??

I was curious, too, so I looked it up (bless you, google! And you too, Ebay!) and found it!
