So expensive, yet so wonderfully transforming.
But did you know you have to teach your draperies to behave just like your kids? True story.
I picked this up from having countless draperies made and hung by experts. (BTW…did you know that there is an actual drapery making college? Let that sink in for a moment. Yeah. I’m fascinated by this because I am so sewing machine challenged I would miserably fail out during the first week.)
Most fabrics used for draperies need a little “training”. This goes for thick fabrics, draperies with thick linings, linen, most silks, and well, basically all fabrics used for draperies.
Here is the super easy, three step process for how to make your long hanging draperies behave:
1. After hanging your draperies, fold the fabric up accordion style lengthwise in the way you would like them to hang permanently.
