Pink Dotted Swiss



The other day I went to my favorite consignment shop and
discovered four panels of pink dotted swiss. One pair is an 84" long, lined
and weighted drape. The other pair are sheer. Both have lovely
scalloped edges. I have always love dotted swiss fabric and was
thrilled to find them especially at very a reasonable price or let's say cheap.
I am not quite sure how I will use them yet. I'm thinking about using
the sheers as cafe curtains on a white rod with white rings.
What do you think?


I just love consignment shops ~ don't you?

I am joining ~

and

Bentley ~ the manager of the consignment shop has a very cute
little female Boston Terrier named Dot. I think you two
would make a very cute couple!!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

  1. Oh goodness! I LOVE dotted Swiss, and haven't seen any of it in YEARS. When I was a girl my mom used to make dresses out of it for my sister and me.

  13. Hi and Happy Pink Saturday! I love your pink dotted swiss-what a wonderful find. Thanks for the visit too-how fun that your license plate reads lanyap. Not too many people know what it means outside here. I also loved reading your response to that "blogger". He obviously has some serious issues!!

  16. I have always loved dotted swiss. One of my fave dresses when I was a teen was red with white dots. I made a sheer pink dotted swiss dress and coat for my daughter one Easter when she was little. A couple years ago I helped my friend make her granddaughter a dotted swiss dress.

    Now you've made me want to make something out of dotted swiss:)

  17. Happy Pink Saturday Susan Sweetie...
    Oh my what a wonderful find. I love dotted swiss and these curtains are absolutely elegant. I can see them hanging at a window with a light breeze blowing through the open window. Keep me posted on what you do with them. Seeing as how they are lined, they would also make a wonderful shower curtain. You could accent with pink items. That would be elegant as well.

    Give Bentley a little hug from Ms Country Wings and remind him that he is so loved too. He just tugs at my little heart each time I see him.

    Have a glorious weekend sweetie. I am still having issues with my blogger dashboard. All my lists are gone, so now I can't see when anyone posts. I am going to start using Google Reader tomorrow so that I can start visiting my blog friends. This has gone on for 4 days with blogger, and have gotten no help what so ever from them.

    Happy Pink Saturday sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  27. I have alway had a "thing" for dotted Swiss--it just reminds me of my childhood! That would be adorable in a little girl's room or nursery. I have no doubt you will put it to good use!
