Love my new valance!
It is exactly the look I was wanting. It is very well made and the ordering process and communicating with Jacq in England was easy. I am so very happy with it.
>>Please message me if you don't see your size.
Made using a semi opaque medium weight 100% European white linen providing privacy while filtering sunlight.
It is comprised of two parts with the lower section joined to the top section (with a drop approx. 12 inches) with a row of cotton lace entre deux and the bottom edge is finished with a decorative row of matching coloured embroidery stitches.
There are two sets of ties which you can use to roll it up to whatever height you desire. There is a 2 inch pocket at the top to insert a rod for hanging and all seams have been professionally surged and finished.
If you are ordering curtains...depending on the look you are trying to achieve you will want to order extra width in addition to the size of your window. There are 3 possible 'looks' as options :-
a) Soft Folds
-The most popular option which will achieve soft folds. Order 1.5x the width of your window. Suitable for embroidered curtains where you can position the fabric in a way that will best show off the embroidery.
For example, if your window measures 48 inches wide and you want to achieve soft folds then order either 1 panel 72 inches (48 + 24 = 72) or 2 panels 36 inches wide.
For a ripple affect order a curtain approx. 2x the width of the window. This will provide the most privacy but will not work if you wish to have a monogram etc. as it will be hidden within the gathers.
This has become more popular in recent times if you want the curtain to hang flat and is more suited to curtains which have a rod pockets both at the top and bottom or those made from our 100% medium weight linen. In this case, just a couple of extra inches will make sure the glass is completely covered.
