Hello, blog. I want to keep up better!- but lately I'm lucky to get in one post a week.
This past week I've spent more time on planning and paperwork than fabrication. The upcoming autumn season is going to be super hot and there's a lot of preparation going on.
But here are a few tidbits of recent projects.
Banding on 4 sides is tough- first you have to be really precise with the measurements because there's no wiggle room; second, there are 4 miters instead of only 2 so that makes it twice as no fun!
This linen trained with one lift of the shade. You can see how nicely the folds have formed.
|The shade really isn't crooked. It's just a perspective thing.|
This double London valance is notable because of how the pleats are made.
However, sometimes I prefer them with single pleats. Occasionally it's to save fabric, and often to keep the fullness understated, and to keep the tails even with the swoops.
