Inverted pleats

The other day I had the opportunity to see some draperies hung up that we made awhile back.

These are inverted box pleats- very small box pleats with a lot of space in between.  The ripple effect was a complete surprise to me!

I like to use clear buckram- the kind used for sheers- in flat panels whether with or without little pleats, because the top line holds without drooping yet is fluid.  The heading is doubled in the back for extra body. 

I was on the run that day- we have work installed in 3 or 4 rooms in this house and I was there to measure more rooms.  I'll take good photos of it all when we install the next phase.

  2. Beautiful curtains Deborah.
    I have an inverted pleat curtain sample hanging in my showroom as well. The way the folds are beautifuly rounded is very attractive something you don't see very often.

    well done you!
