Lined Drapery Panels
Good evening to all. Yesterday we blogged about the process of beginning a project and what steps you need to consider. Next week we will be starting our project of sewing lined drapery panels. To begin, you will need to measure your window and then decide how much gather you want. If you wish to have a lot of gather, it is recommended to do 2 to 2 1/2 times the width of your window. If you want less, then consider 1 1/2 to 2 times the width. It will depend on your preference. Whatever amount of fabric you choose, you will need the same amount of lining. As for the lining, direction of where your window is will be a big factor. If it is on the South or West side, then you may want to line your drapery. These two directions have the most light so you will need to decide if you want less light in or if you want black out. We will be starting this next week, so get yourself ready to join in the fun.
