So my curtains arrived today, that was fast! They are really lovely in person, a nice light cotton, not as heavy as I thought. (Not like the Ikea curtains for example.) I threw them in the wash straight away to get out any sizing and shrink them, I plan on using this as a picnic dress so I want to make sure I can throw it in the wash after I make it up and not worry about it shrinking. This is how it looks straight out of the dryer: The colors are very "autumn" - sage green, mustard, saffron, coffee-with-cream, scarlet and a salmon pink on a black ground. A few little things you may not have caught - the curtain is 50 x 80" but as Jen Thompson noted it can be unpicked to give a little more length and width. For a tall girl like me - 5'9 - one curtain is probably not quite enough for a petticoat worn over a bumroll. Two probably are enough for a petticoat and matching jacket though.
By the way, I'm sure you noticed my blog looks a little different! I've been wanting to change things for a while and have only now finally gotten around to doing it. I'm not quite finished yet, but I'd love any feedback you have (good or bad) on the new look.
