Two Pretty Valances
The Milan valance is one of my personal favorites. This actually is a modified Milan- it is narrower and shorter than the M'Fay pattern, so I just drew it from scratch using the pattern as a rough guide.
Micro-cord defines the bottom line. This is super-ultra-micro-cord- about 1/16"!
Here's a shaped kick pleat valance with shirred cones at the ends, out of a spectacular and exotic embroidered linen.
The proportions of the valance were planned to coordinate with the horizontal pattern repeat.
The trim is a Scalamandre silk tassel, soft as a baby's hair.
