Roman Shade with a Shaped Bottom

Hope everyone is having a great day on this beautiful spring morning!  I usually do a tutorial on the projects I share, but this is one I did before I started my blog.  I don't always get the opportunity to see my work after it is installed, but I'm doing some additional work for this house and was there last week.  I'm really pleased with the way it came out.  The designer who hired me to make this is really talented and she is my favorite to sew for.  She always adds interesting details that make her projects fun to sew and anything but boring.
Isn't it adorable?!  I love the graceful lines this designer chose and the tassels give it that finished detail!
The similar lines of the valance are a perfect topper for this window.

I'll be making some more shaped Roman Shades for this designer this week, I'll try to do a tutorial and break it down in simple steps.Pin It Pin It

  3. I would LOVe a tutorial. I made a Roman shade, and it just doesn't pull up smoothly and evenly. I'm hoping a good tutorial will help me find the problem.

  7. I'll be waiting for the tutorial as well. I've been saving some fabric for a special window, and a shaped-bottom Roman Shade sounds like a great application.

  11. I love roman shades too! It’s beautiful and very functional because it can control the amount of light that enters a space. But I don’t use sheer fabric on my roman shades. The sheerness of the fabric makes it difficult to control the light. If you want to use sheer fabric shades, you can attach a black out liner that adds a darkening layer to the fabric. Hope to see your other designs!
