The Scarlett O-Hara Dress

Picture
Here is my dress made from a pair of drapes
and a valance that I found in a dark and musty
corner of the Ajo Thrift Store a dozen years ago.

I call it my Scarlett O'hara dress, since I literally cut off

the drapery pleats and hooks, trimmed the hems and then washed this fantastic fabric to reinvent it as a dress.
I just had to use the trim that was on the valance!

And then added a tassel - just to be sure and

keep that Scarlett O'Hara feeling!

I've worn this to weddings, parties and also
when I was the announcer at a
Spring Fashion Show a few years ago.
With a veiled vintage hat, it is quite the outfit!

(Of course, there is always that lingering worry that I may have left the curtain rod attached.)
Enjoy the classic Carol Burnett version below!
