The second was a really pretty balloon shade in the upstairs sitting room. Liz from Paris Interiors asked if we could turn it into something more tailored and modern.
My job was to take this apart and make it into a flat roman with trim around all 4 sides.
Another tidbit: the creases from the center pleat of the original balloon style was very difficult to remove. Luckily the fabric responded positively to a ton of steam and Crease-Away. Nevertheless I couldn't get the creases out of the top 10" or so. In the workroom it was really obvious, with the overhead light; but I decided to just trust that the whole shade was so awesome that the creases wouldn't be noticed. And guess what- even I could not see them once the shade was in the window.
