Thanks to my mom for teaching me when I was very little how to draft patterns! It was my grandmother who taught me to sew, but my mom taught me the joy of developing the technical foundation that supports creativity.
Squire valances in the living room were made from a heavy upholstery weight fabric. Since the horizontal threads on the reverse side show through when the sun is shining, this fabric was lined with the French blackout method- our regular white sateen, then a layer of black sateen to block the light, interlining, then face fabric.

Are you wondering, who makes up these valance names? M'Fay, that's who. Many of her patterns have become industry reference standards.
