They guide you through choosing a style to suit the proportions of your room and windows, selecting fabrics and patterns, and all the practicalities of different headings and finishes. Projects include a window panel with appliqud shapes; a stylish no-sew curtain made from a sheet; and, using just a few easy-to-follow sewing techniques, a handpleated unlined curtain and a traditional roman blind.* Step-by-step instructions on making and customizing window treatments with illuminating photography by Polly Eltes.
