Window skirting

Not too long ago I was designing aprons from recycled skirts and vintage trims. I did a whole line called “Aprons as Fashion” and thought the world needed to get their aprons out of the kitchen and out into the streets. :)

I’m back at the sewing machine with a new slant on aprons and skirts. They make perfect curtain panels! A lot of the ruffling is already present and the skirt waistbands are the right circumference for a small extension rod. How’s that for saving some time? A few straight seams and voila!

This is what the laundry room/potting shed windows looked like before. The afternoon sun was blinding so these curtains provide just the right amount of shade.
