Relaxed Ribbed Roman?
There's no telling how the text and photos are going to arrange themselves on this post- I don't have much control over where they wind up!
Anyhow, here is phase one of an installation; the second room's fabric is backordered so this is going into the family room tomorrow.
The draperies, lying on the table, are interlined; lined with a special blackout lining along the lines of Apollo; portiere; tassel-trimmed; and pleated with two-finger Euro or top tack pleats.
The swag and jabots looks kind of forlorn in the back hallway, but dressed in its window it'll look fantastic. I am not real big on pleated swags, but gathered swags are right up my alley, and also I enjoy making them.
The shade is something really really great! It's a ribbed flat Roman shade with a relaxed bottom. It goes up & down like a charm, and the relaxed part never needs dressing since it's fixed. I think this is going to become my new signature shade.
