Proudly presenting..... a reader's DIY project!

Just about a year ago, a lovely woman named Jackie contacted me after reading this blog.  She had recently moved into a gracious new home, and was considering tackling some window treatments herself.  We corresponded a few times, and then she got to work.
I'm so excited to be able to show pictures of her project!  She did a beautiful job, and her creations truly look professional.
Jackie had some experience making curtains and shades for her previous home.  She learned to sew in Home Ec class and from watching her creative mom.   For these shades she took the excellent step of purchasing the M'Fay London shade pattern.  When she contacted me, answers to a few questions were all she needed to nudge her confidence.
Jackie is not timid!  She asked for advice that she needed, and I love that she didn't settle for making a basic shade.   These shades are interlined, and the proportions and pattern layout are perfect.  Look at that contrast fabric in the pleats, AND the coordinating lip cord in the pleat seams!  The result is lovely, and so perfect for her home.  She should be proud of herself- I am!
