Sheer Hobbled Shade
Definitely a fab fabric.
It became a hobbled shade, sheer, unlined.
Since it was a reverse mount, I could not easily find a way to photograph the front. But the back is more interesting, anyhow. It uses translucent twill tape from Rowley to create the hobbles; TechStyles' cord shroud was joined to the twill tape; then the clear rings were sewn over both to secure.
The shade width was 61", and the fabric was 58" wide. The widths were joined and serged, and wide, double 2" hems pressed in, completely covering the seams. The hem was hand- blind-stitched, catching the serged seam, so no hand stitches show on the fronts.
