* Scarlett O'Hara in ''GoneWithTheWind'' makes a PimpedOutDress out of her fancy curtains to try to avoid looking destitute when she meets Rhett. As he lets her know in a later scene, he isn't fooled (although its her work-roughened hands, not the dress, that gives her away). Arguably the TropeCodifier for modern versions of this trope.

* In ''Dark Angel: The Ascent'', the demon Veronica arrives on Earth naked and makes a dress out of a trash bag and some sheets. Later, she cuts up a leather sofa and makes a dress out of that.

* Maria in ''TheSoundOfMusic'' makes play clothing for the Von Trapp children from the curtains. When she's called on it, she points out that the curtains were being replaced, anyways; she just used the ''old'' ones, so the fabric didn't go to waste. This fails to mollify Captain Von Trapp, whose main concern is that people would think he was too cheap to buy his children proper clothes or too ineffectual to teach his children proper dress standards.

* One episode of ''{{Scrubs}}'' mentioned an incident in which JD dress his infant son Sam like Julius Ceaser, as in cutting holes in a ''pillowcase'' for him to wear with a belt. JD's excuse was that he was unprepared, not having clothes for Sam at his place since Sam is usually at Kim's. * In the first episode [[OnceASeason of every season]] of [[RupaulsDragRace RuPaul's Drag Race]], Ru challenges the {{drag queen}}s to make dresses out of whatever random things she can throw at them. In the second season, it's curtains, and the episode directly invokes ''Gone with the Wind''.

Added DiffLines:
[[folder:Video Games]] * In ''VideoGame/{{Cataclysm}}: Dark Days Ahead'', characters in urgent need of warm clothing can tear down curtains from windows and wear them as clothing. Not recommended as a permanent solution since their encumbrance value is high for all body parts, which severely penalizes your accuracy and speed. A more practical solution would be to cut up the curtains into pieces and then use the resulting rags to craft actual clothing. [[/folder]]

** A variant occurred in ''ProjectRunway'', when the designers had to use items purchased at a grocery store. At least two contestants used shower curtains.
