Shirred valance with header

This has always been a favorite treatment of mine.

Besides this 45" valance, there were two at 100".   The fabric is bulky, and the valance interlined, so the fullness is only a little more than double.

Flat 3/8" bias cordless welting (or flange) trimmed the bottom.

A separate header- a 1x4- was interlined and welted at the bottom.

The welting is made with fusible web, to prevent buckling or stretching.

The welting was applied to the bottom of the header with adhesive tape, again to prevent unevenness and buckling.

The valance was shirred and stapled and the dustboard covered, then the header was secured to the valance, and it was done!
