Mock Roman Valance

The client wanted a mock roman valance.  Usually this means evenly spaced folds of equal size, but she had in mind something that looked more like a roman shade actually pulled up............ like this:


These valances go over the sheer shades that were bound in the same orange upholstery fabric.

This is a variation on a flat-back hobbled roman. 

This treatment took some rumination and experimentation.  I like how it turned out, and I like the clean back.  Next time I know how to make it without the horizontal stitching lines showing.

  1. Is there a pattern for the valance in the first picture- the solid brown mock roman valance that looks like a roman shade pulled up? thanks.
