This is the ultimate guide to designing and creating soft furnishings, from curtains and blinds to bed canopies and chair covers. The numerous techniques covered in this book include how to make roller, roman, festoon, and inverted pleat blinds, as well as how to make lined and interlined curtains. Draping and dressing sheers and curtains with swags and tails, tie-bands, pelmets, and valences (elegant and original), can be affordably achieved. Melanie Paine's stylish ideas are guaranteed to inspire anyone wanting to make soft furnishings themselves or to commission others to create the perfect result.
