Drapes

Since I finished the drapes I've had so many complements from friends and family. Some of the comments were " they look so rich, I know that was a lot of work, luxurious".
It was a lot of work; lesson learned- planning, gathering all the supplies you're going to need and deciding a sewing order is the key to success.
Of course I'm going to continue to make window coverings. In fact I love sewing home dec projects. The one advice I will share is that the lining should be added at the very end. Don't add it a the very beginning because the drape becomes too heavy. Enjoy!
