Written by Heather Luke, a professional interior decorator, Design and Make Fabric Window Shades contains both advice and inspiration. It explains how to deal with windows of an unusual shape or set into sloping roofs; how to combine shades with heavyweight winter curtains or summertime sheers; and how to achieve unusual effects such as hanging two shades of different designs or fabrics at the same window. Even the simplest Roman shade can be customized by adding a shaped hem or extra detail such as lace or a contrasting fabric.
The book also provides a comprehensive basic techniques chapter covering all the sewing techniques and planning advice you will need, while the easy-to-follow instructions for making the shades feature step-by-step photographs. With a feast of specially commissioned color photography, Design and Make Fabric Window Shades contains everything you need to create your own stylishly original window treatments.
