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.
