SEARCHING FOR ANTHROPOLOGIE KNOCK-OFF TUTORIALS......

Several months ago I ran across tutorials on how to knock off  both this Anthropologie ruffled shower curtains and the cutiest duvet cover.  I thought that I bookmarked both tutorials, but now can't find them.  I had seen the duvet cover in a Country Living magazine during the summer and had fallen in love with it then.  While I am pretty sure I could pull off either of the ruffled shower curtains, I am not sure at all of how to knock-off the duvet cover.  I guess I could set up special savings accounts and purchase "these not so necessary. but I would really like to have them beauties" after several months, but I would much rather be able to say "I made them myself".

If you have seen the tutorials on how to knock these off, or if you know how to do it yourself, COULD YOU PLEASE ENLIGHTEN ME?

  5. Faye, it appears to be a combination of two heirloom sewing techniques done on a large scale. In the first one the fabric is "rumpled" and ironed onto a piece of iron-on stabilizer. Then you smock it with the jewels. The duvet appears to be done in one piece, but I'd try it with smaller pieces and have the smocking hide the seams. HTH, Melodye
