So here are some post-installation photos of some recent projects.
Denise Wenacur turned this window seat into a colorful and tasteful space that a young girl can grow into. Is glazed cotton making a resurgence? Both of these prints were somewhat glazed, especially the cushion fabric. It was a delight to sew, and the geometric design made it super easy to match the pattern on the boxing to the main body.
here. We made these new ones the same way, on buckram with interlining, minus the trim and lip cord.
Suzie of Cottages to Castles: blackout draperies, 4 widths each side, out of a horizontal striped faux silk? I did have help fabricating these- that's quite a handful of fabric! We used double-wide "Silky" blackout so there would be no seams with light leakage. These curtains are installed on a motorized rod.
D. S. Interiors, full of inverted pleat, mock wave curtains? Every single space had a slightly different finished length, so we pattern matched from the top down, using 4" fusible transparent Dofix buckram. What a breeze that product made the project! The tucks were pleated to pattern so the geometric motif is the same on every "wave." The bottom hems were barely 1" so there would be a minimum of embroidery showing through the double fold. White chain weight helps the fabric stay put. The measurements were so unequal, sometimes even on one single window, so we mostly split the difference to keep the bottom line of the curtain as much the same as possible.
Well, that's all for today, folks! More next time........
