Purple Pleated Fab Fabric

If you didn't want purple draperies before, perhaps this fabric would change your mind.

Another completely awesome Bart Halpern pleated fabric, made up with fat, happy, double-topped pinch pleats.  All hand-sewn, and I found purple thread for the pleats that matched perfectly.

It turned out to be a dream to work with, though I have to say I was a little intimidated when I first saw it.  The yardage was stabilized on the back, unlike the brown sheer Bart Halpern from a couple of months ago.
I am just loving these bulky double-topped pleats, wrap-tacked around the front by hand, rather than stab-tacked through the sides of the pleat.
They are really dramatic in this taffeta-

and this heavy, slubby linen/cotton.
