My $4/yard Marimekko fabric shower curtain came out amazing! It’s really loud for our tiny bathroom, but I like it. I also whipped up some curtains in a more subtle fabric since they chopped down our tree and it’s so so sunny and hot in the afternoon. Pictures of those once I hang them.
I made a photoshop mockup to decide how wide I wanted my panels. The fabric is 58″ wide, and I wanted the shower curtain to be 72×72 so some seaming was necessary. The edges of the print are white, so I ended up using the full width of the fabric as a center panel and one skinny panel on either side of it. I did french seams and then sewed them down for reinforcement. I turned the two side and bottom hems under 1/2″ twice, and made a 2″ hem on the top. I used my old shower curtain as a guide and made buttonholes across the top for the shower curtain hooks. The hardest part of this project was wrangling such long pieces of fabric.
I think I used under 4 yards total for the shower curtain, so I have quite a bit of the 7 yards I bought left. After working with it I’ve deemed it too stiff and scratchy for any clothes unless I line it, and it would still be so stiff, so…bags coming up!!
