Using the steps I outlined in this (long, multi-post) tutorial, the drapes were cut, sewn and hemmed...
(checking fabric band placement, in the harsh early morning light!)
...with a band of fabric added along the bottom edge, following the steps in a tutorial here. I think I'm good for about one pair of drapes a year. Any more than that and I would be sending the fabric to the seamstress, despite the cost. (Ha, who am I kidding....)
Up next, a very easy project in comparison...stitching a few pillows using this muted green fabric and a bit of gorgeous trim.
Have a fabulously spooky Halloween weekend! Also, look for my latest Houzz Ideabook tomorrow, in which I showcase a stylish collection of rooms designed using the color palette of black and white.
