The biggest issue was lining. The woven damask pattern completely washed out when sun came through the fabric. To decide on the best lining option, we sewed together 20" of four different lining combinations.
When the panel was hung, of course the linings are in the reverse order. On the left, the single layer of napped sateen was very little help in preventing pattern wash-out. To the far right, the khaki layer blocked a surprising amount of sun. In the middle, the two other options were similar, except that the natural interlining enhanced the yellow in the ocher ground to produce a beautiful luminous gold color, and and also lent its rich fullness, which the dim-out could not match. We agreed that natural interlining and ivory lining were the way to go.
Up close we also decided we liked the gold silk for the microcord, but we'll make it a tad bigger so it will show up better.
Lastly, we both liked the panel puddled- neither of us being "puddle people," we were surprised!
