I have always considered myself to be a creative person, and I LOVE to scavage thrift stores, junk stores and Goodwill looking to fulfill that obsession!! It really is an obsession, you know what I'am talking about!! LOL

Wedding Gown Ruffles in the shower!!

Go ahead, just try and guess what this is?  Give Up?  O.K.

There is a shower curtain on the Victorian Trading Company site that I really really wanted.  It cost around 50.00 dollars.  I had the idea that I could make one if I could find the right materials,for cheaper.  I had been eyeballing a old wedding gown at goodwill for a while...it was torn around the waist.  I asked the price and she said they could not sell it because it was torn.  I told her fine, because I was going to take it apart any way.....Long story short....I got it for 4.00, dismantled the ruffles, attached them to another goodwill find shower curtain horizontally and made my version of the shower curtain, for around 10.00.  I haven't been brave enough to hang it yet, although It washes up like a charm! 


  1. I'll bet it's sooo pretty! Can't wait to see it hanging up!

  2. Great idea and what a cost saver. I'd love to see it finished.

    Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday.
