A few weeks ago I made a pair of white ruffled curtains for a client. I bought the fabric at IKEA – have you seen the new fabrics they are carrying? I can hardly hold myself back from rushing straight to the textile section every time I go to IKEA.
My client sent me a photo of a curtain with ruffles running the length of the panels. I added the ruffle on the bottom because the length didn’t come out quite as long as I had planned. Somehow I misfigured the amount I needed for the casing for the curtain rod.
The fabric is cotton but has a linen look to the weave. It’s a great weight – not too heavy, not too light. This is the fabric I plan to use to slipcover my wingbacks. I need to get more fabric though.
So what’s your opinion – do you like ruffles are you more into plain and simple?
