Sound of Music Moment: Curtains Sewn Into Flapper Style Dress

Supplies: Slip Liner (thrift store find $1 to $3)
sheer organza curtains (recycled find new)



I love this dress! You can easily wear sandals for a low key look or dress it up with heels and leather jacket for evening...Go for a darling flapper look by adding flats, pearls, and a beaded cardigan.


I used a set of sheer curtains (recycling). You can easily get sheer organza from the fabric store or use any fabric you like (sheer fabrics have a natural flow to them that creates a natural wave without gathering). If you don't want to finish the edges, it will have that raw look! You can find amazing slips at thrift stores for $2.00 or so. 


To do this you want to create even strips so cut the curtains into even sections (6 inches for mine). 
I also have a serger, which keeps the edges from fraying and creates the pretty curled edging. Also helps create a natural wave of ruffles.


A tip to make even lines on the slip: I like to iron mine on by folding it up the correct amount of inches.
Pin layers right sides together on the ironed marks: SEW every layer.

    1. She also makes curtains for the kids in the Sound of Music. It is done in both movies. :)

    2. Yes, Sound of Music, she makes a whole wardrobe with them...

    3. In the "Sound of Music" she is told that the curtains in her room will be replaced and she uses them to make play clothes for the children. No curtains for the children. This is in both the movies.

  18. I really want to make this for my daughter. How do you sew the top piece on? Do you top stitch the layers so they stay 'down'? Also is there a way to finish off the edges without a serger?

  28. Use lists to keep your information private when playing social games. Social games, such as the many available on Facebook are gaining popularity at a rapid rate. These games require cooperation, and are not meant to be played alone. This can make progression difficult if you don't have many friends. Adding friends solely to play games with is a great way to get further in these games, but can leave your information at risk. Create a list of your gaming friends, and take advantage of the privacy settings available on Facebook to limit the access this list has to your information.

  34. سجاده فرش امروزه يکي از مهم ترين نيازهاي هر مسجد براي مفروش کردن مي باشد
    سجاده فرش هايي که براي مسجد استفاده مي شوند به دو صورت سجاده فرش محرابي و سجاده فرش تشريفاتي تقسيم مي شوند.
    سجاده فرش هاي تشريفاتي بيشتر براي مساجد اهل تسنن مورد استفاده قرار مي گيرد
    زيراکه اهل تسنن اصلا به نمازگزاردن روي محراب اعتقاد ندارند
    اما در ميان سجاده فرش ها, فروش سجاده فرش هاي محرابي بيشتر از سجاده فرش هاي تشريفاتي مي باشد
    هر روزه بر تنوع کيفيت و طرح انواع سجاده فرش مسجد افزوده مي گردد
    اما بهترين سجاده فرش هاي مسجدي , سجاده هايي هستند که کيفيت بهتري داشته باشد
    وکيفيت فرش سجاده اي از شانه و تراکم و جنس نخ فرش مسجد برداشته مي شود.
    در اين ميان اهميت جنس نخ فرش سجاده اي نسبت به شانه و تراکم بيشتر است . شما ميتوانيد به صورت اينترنتي از سايت فرش مسجدي انواع سجاده فرش محرابي و فرش سجاده اي تشريفاتي را مشاهده نماييد .

  35. گليم فرش ماشيني که برخي ان را به اشتباه جاجيم يا پلاس مي‌خوانند، فرشي بافته شده از تار پنبه و پود پشم ،ابريشم و موي بز است. تفاوت گليم با پلاس در نوع پود ان است. پلاس را از هرنوع نخي مي‌توان بافت حتي تکه پارچه هاي لباس که به صورت درازا برش خورده باشد. گليم پرز نمي‌دهد، علاوه برآن گليم الياف بلند هم ندارد. اگر نخ پود و تار فرش بافته شده هر دو از پنبه تشکيل شده باشد، به فرش زيلو گفته مي‌شود.
    گليم را به صورت چهارخانه يا راه راه مي‌بافند و در حقيقت روشي شبيه پارچه بافي دارد. گليم و گبه هر دو در صورت دستبافت خود طرح‌هاي ذهني بافنده را يدک مي‌کشند. گليم درسرتاسر کشور بافته مي‌شود. اما توليد کننده عمده توليد گليم در شهر کاشان و اران و بيدگل بافته ميشود . شما ميتوانبد به در شرکت گليم فرش مسجدي فروش اينترنتي گليم فرش ماشيني انجام مي شود 
    در هرمنطقه از نوع نخي که در همان منطقه هست استفاده مي‌شود.براي اظلاعات بيشتر در مورد قيمت گليم فرش ماشيني، و ... ميتوانيد به سايت فرش مسجدي مراجعه کنيد .
