I Enjoy Working with Interior Designers

I have developed a great relationship with several area designers.  After I measure and calculate how many yards the treatment requires I'm able to give an estimate.

I love sitting at the machine...stitiching and sewing...sewing and stitching....cutting and clipping....
....... measuring and pressing.  
Yes it requires lots of patience.

These Roman Shades were created by interior designer Jill Davis in Old Town Alexandria, VA.
Jill's work is fantastic!  I hope to show more photos in future post.

I love working with interior designers.  I enjoy the challenge of bringing their creativity to life.

Custom Made Top Down Bottom Up Roman Shades

Here I am installing Goblet Pleated Panels and Top Down Bottom Up Roman Shades.

We had to take very specific measurements to make these shades and to fit the job.

The wood pole had to fit right between the upper and lower widow frames.

  The shades fit inside the window and the valances fit just a bit wider........

We also made the goblet pleated panels.

The Right Fabric and Lining to Create a Beautiful Shade

Design professionals really know how to bring together the right elements to create function and beauty.
The designer chose a medium patterned upholstry weight fabric, then consulted with  The Drapery Shop to select the right lining and to make the shades .
