My Biggest Sew Of All Time!

Wednesday 12 March 2014

Last year I walked into a tea shop and saw the most gorgeous two toned curtains up at the windows. 

They were velvet and oh my goodness...jacquard print too.

I was in love! I asked the owner about them and she said she got her inspiration from France.

That was it, I was on pinterest looking for gorgeous fabrics, drapes and patterns.

My husband, Mr.S. was pretty cool with me to go ahead and do what I wanted!I think after having Little L he was happy I wanted to sew again.I had visions for cream and gold drapes at our patio looking onto the garden.

Here we are 8 months later and the project is complete with some help from my Mum, loaning me the space to make them and for my husband for looking after Little L so much. 

But they are hanging and look devine.

I used a golden/green velvet and large repeat jacquard floral. The curtains both are one and a half times the width of the window. 

I used the velvet to wrap around the front and back of the curtains so they hand straight and the weight of the velvet is balanced front and back.

This project has been a labour of love and I am so proud of my biggest sew ever!

Happy Sewing!
