Your opinion needed!

A couple of weekends ago I sewed and sewed to finally make a curtain for the bathroom that I had planned a few years ago. However when I finished and hung it I was really disappointed with the end result. Hubby kept telling me that I was being too harsh and that it looked good. But have you ever had an end vision and it didn't turn out the way you had hoped?

Here was the first version.....

I used what I thought was the last piece of curtaining in this style that I had and I figured I would just have to put up with its width since it was all I had - it was just, but it doesn't look right to me. Then lo and behold, out of the material cupboard I had dragged down to the shed falls a plastic bag and in it, more of the curtaining, lace and the tape! Yaah. So I decided I would be redoing it despite hubby's protests. Last weekend didn't work out for this and I think inwardly I was putting it off. So this weekend I pushed myself to sew it at the last part of this avo (I work well to deadlines - can't you tell?). Here is the second effort which personally I feel outstrips the first!!

Now this is where I need your opinion. I have bunched up the curtain in two different ways - the first with scallops down the bottom and the second with roughing all the way down. Now I need to know what you think looks better as I can't decide!

Oh and ignore the fact that the sides down hang down straight yet. I raided hubby and son's fishing table for a sinker to weight down the bottom of the curtain so it hangs straight and does not crimp inwards, but they didn't have a sinker heavy enough so off to the tackle shop myself I think!

Ok I will wait for your opinions :)


  1. i like the first one because its not over done.
    the other one looks a bit too much in my opinion. :)
    the second one is good also, but i wouldnt hang the third one up in my bathroom ;D .

  2. ... it's mini...i like the first cause it also matches in with your coloured curtain (scalloped down the bottom) well done... whichever you choose... i always rely myself on whatever leads to LESS CLEANING as curtains can be dust collectors.... you are so skillful.... ;)

  3. Have you decided? I like the one with scallops down the bottom. Very nice!! You're so clever!

  4. No I haven't decided yet as i wanted to take on board all of your opinions however I have had the latter version hanging up all week and I feel like it looks a little messy - I think I am leaning to the first version with the scallops down the bottom. Will leave that one up for a while and see what I think of it over time before i tidy up the cords and get sinkers on it. Thanks for your help girls. :)
