Ooh, you meant a synthetic shower curtain! That's great, couldn't have been better for the Mud Festival :-). I love the dress, but I must confess I'd kill for the pink wellies :-).

A shower curtain for an event where you know it will rain. Aren't you clever!! Great looking dress!

I am so amused with the appropriateness of your dress for the event! Sure beats a garbage bag, huh!!! :) Enjoyed seeing this fabulous dress again!!

Great dress!! Ilove that you used a shower curtain-very clever; and string from the hardware store to make your own piping-very resourceful. Your dress is so pretty on you, well done!

Very cute dress! I think I need to run over to IKEA and look at their shower curtains as the first thing I noticed was the great fabric you used!

Shower curtain! I had to read that three times and kept looking at your photos to be sure. I would never have guessed your lovely dress had a former life. :) Very pretty.

Gorgeous dress, beautiful photo shot. Seeing your photos reminds me of my London living days and trawling the fabric stalls on Walthamstow market.

I loved this dress when I first saw it. I have the fabric picked out for it too BUT the shower curtain idea is too cool. Great dress.

Love the shower curtain! I have a shower curtain from Garnet Hill in my stash that is also waiting for a good dress - I like the stiffness of the curtain!

What a great dress! I love to go to the pottery barn outlet and look for clearance sheets/showercurtains to use for my girls!

I've been in love with this dress since it popped up on the website. It looks adorable. I thought it would be so dressy, but you've made it fun and casual too.

I love that fabric. Wish we had an Ikea nearby... I'm going to look at sheets and shower curtains with a sewer's eye from now on...
