I love jacquard/damask fabric and use them often to make curtains or pillow covers. Well I came across a lovely pattern while out shopping with my mom. You know I got a lot of feedback from her, “you’re buying those to make what!! -or- Daughter of mine… that there is some foolery–or- didn’t you tell me something about some sheets… you made what!!! Pants… you need to get out more and not just to work"…lol
Lastly, I must admit a lot of sewing inspiration comes from reading Blogs of Sewing Divas, just to name a few:

Well looky here... while out shopping with Momma Dearest... this caught my eye.. ummmm... *my brain is churning every so slowly*
Mom and I went into a Linen store to check out some comforters and the store was having a curtain sale - Panels for $4.99. We browsed the various sale items and I zeroed in on the gray-blue panels by Springmaid and they also came in a soft lavender... Darn - now that I think about it I should of bought that one too.
Fabric 51% Cotton/49% Polyester - Size 50" x 84"
I used New Look 6569 and opted not to use the Lining.
I totally love the fabric with its tonal floral pattern. The Care instructions read Dry Clean only but I figured cotton/polyester can definitely be washed and washed it I did w/o any problems.While out window shopping I noticed a lot of Big Bold Floral skirts and decided the curtain panel was perfect to make a skirt. Although I mentioned that I would make one more skirt with New Look 6569... I realized I purchased quite a bit of material for skirts... so back to the sewing board.
