Time to Sew
We are just about ready to start making some new draperies. The first thing to determine is if you want full length or just a valence. You will also need to decide how much gather you want. Some go 2 1/2 times the width of the window and some do 1 1/2 times. It is up to your discretion as to how much gather you desire. Next you will need to determine the type of curtain rod you are going to use. Next, when picking out your fabric, be sure to look at whether it has a specific repeat in the pattern. If it does, you will need to allow for extra fabric to match. Come Monday, we are going to start sewing. Be ready to give your room a new look!
