For a young woman's bedroom- 4 gorgeous shades from this embroidered linen/cotton blend, for a sort of high-end, nouveau-hippie look.
To prepare the lining, the edges are pressed in 3/4" and the pockets marked and stitched.
The weight bar is sewn into a pocket behind the purple band. On the front the weight bar pocket is topstitched along the edge of the purple.
On this shade, the center of the motif is exactly in the center of the shade, but if you look closely, at the top, the pattern is not symmetrical laterally. If it had been cut with the sides in mind, the center of the motif would not have been in the center of the shade.
As you look toward the bottom of the shade you can see that the pattern evens out somewhat.
Also, the pattern drops just a smidgen on the right side of the roll.
The most important centering criterion was the center of the motif, and that set the stage for all the variations.
