I really hesitated when deciding what kind of curtains to buy/make because between the wallpaper that I plan on putting up and the already bright green walls, less may be more. But I had been seeing ruffled curtains making the rounds on tumblr and various blogs, and became sort of enamored with the idea of really soft and frilly curtains.
Urban Outfitters sells "waterfall" curtains for both showers and windows, but there was no way that I would be paying $78 a panel. Plus, I checked them out in person and the material is soft but not particularly great, so I decided to pull myself out of my DIY slump and buy some fabric. At $1.49 a yard, cotton muslin has the perfect off-white shade I was looking for, and a certain bit of roughness to off-set the girliness of it all, although I couldn't help getting some pretty eyelet too...
I spent the greater part of my evening almost finishing one curtain. I have to add the ruffle panels to the second one still, and to finish the first one (I'm leaving the last panel for measuring out more panels). So far, so good, even while working in the most constrained situations, as evidenced below.
