beautiful treatment has many details.
The inverted pleat valance is lightly scalloped with cording along the
bottom edge. It is mounted to a board just behind the decorative pole.
Goblet pleated panels with contrast buttons on the pleats, 3" contrast
banding on three sides and an overlay valance which is also banded on
three sides. The main fabric is a soft camel colored velvet. The couch
is upholstered in the same fabric.
2 side windows.
I made a major mistake
on these two windows. I mismeasured and made them about 10" too short.
The fix. I took the
overlay valance off and used the leftover fabric ( I had ordered enough
originally) to add the length at the top of the panel. I also added length
to the lining.
I was extremely fortunate
in that the fabric was dense enough that the sun did not shine through
and highlight the seam. Also that the treatment had an overlay valance
to hide the patch. And, finally, a wonderful client who did not insist
that the entire panel be remade properly.
Scroll down for close-up.

valance with the cording detail and the overlay valance with goblet, button
and banding detail.
This treatment was
time-consuming. But the end result was quite striking.
