An interesting variation
I think the valance half-sections peeking out from under the shirred panels is intriguing. This is only the second time I've ever done valances and panels this way, and I have another job coming up soon using that concept, though it will be a very different style and context.
The valances do not go all the way to the ends of the boards; that allowed more flexibility in sizing the sections. The panels were sewn with velcro shirring tape; the hook side of the velcro was stapled to the board with increments marked off so the installer and decorator could decide on-site how wide to shirr up the panels.
