I think you're ready for Project Runway, with the unusual materials challenge! Be proud you were creative enough to see a dress in a shower curtain and use sheets to line it! Thanks for the info on how to line it, also.

What a great find at Marshall's and ultimately a beautifully fitting dress for you.

I love that you used a shower curtain for this! Your dress is beautiful, and I love the placement of the large motif.

I love your dress - hours you spent agonizing about placement were well spent as I do not think the motif could be better placed. I smiled at the fct that this is from a shower curtain and you should be so proud of seeing the possibilities in that.

Wonderful placement of your floral print! Your face and neck look like the tallest flower in the bouquet.

Thank you so much for all your kind comments! I do love this dress and wear it often. Luckily no weird reactions so far HAHA. It fits me well and I've been considering a second version in black dupioni for officiating weddings. I think on future versions, I'll change the back slit to a vent, but given my fabric restrictions, it wasn't really an option for this one.

This is a gorgeous dress! You were very creative in using a shower curtain and to make the placements on the fabric perfect! Great job! I have this pattern and made a dress sometime ago but you have inspired me to pull this one out and give it a go again.

You did a fantastic job with the print placement. Outstanding!

Seriously...a shower curtain??!! I love the way you think! This turned out beautifully and I think it's safe to say no one would guess that in a million years. Just beautiful.... I thought I was through buying sheath patterns but the neckline on this one is too cute to resist. Thanks for the great inspiration.

You look stunning! Fabulous dress, and perfect use of the large print. Bravo.

What a great dress and very clever to use a shower curtain. One never knows where inspiration will strike! Good job fitting and matching, too.

Lovely "shower curtain" dress, fabulous print! Reminds me of the type of dress I used to wear in my 20s, sooo long ago.

Great work from a shower curtain! I will have to remember to check out shower curtains for fabric when I shop! You are lucky to have a figure that can carry off such a large print. Many of us cannot do least not anymore. :-(

Wow, I can't believe you made this gorgeous dress from a shower curtain. That is really thinking outside the square. You have achieved a perfect fit and the pattern placement is fantastic. I am in awe.

Absolutely fabulous! I love it when up cycling makes something great! Fantastic dress!

You rocked this shower curtain. I remember Marec once made a great blouse out of a curtain; this equals her achievement. GREAT dress!

A shower curtain? It is gorgeous. I looked at this review to see where you got the fabric. You did a great job and it is a gorgeous dress!

I always check out shower curtains and other unorthodox sources of fabric. A lovely outcome with your shower curtain!

OMG! I almost fell out of my chair when I read you made this from a shower curtain! You look like princess Kate Middleton, the fit it perfect and is gorgeous!

This is great looking on you. Very "Anthropologie" style ! You did a fab job on matching the sides ( a pet peeve of mine). Very creative in a good way!!

haha, I think it's funny, the idea of using a shower curtain, but wow, it sure works for this dress! You look so great!! Never know where inspiration will hit!;)

Proud. You should definitely be proud. Your dress looks wonderful!
