Questions and Answers

Follow me on:

I believe that if one person asks me a question at least a dozen more have the same question but for some reason they are afraid to ask... given the Internet it's probably hundreds, maybe even thousands, instead of a dozen. I also believe there is NO dumb question! This week I received an email that had FANTASTIC questions so I decided to start an new viewer FAQ. Follow the questions to find ways to ask questions that may be added to the new FAQ or ask on the forum... all I ask is that you ask the questions! No one can answer if you don't ask!

Hi – I love your directions for making a pocket rod drapery panel but I am making mine lined. The fabric is cotton toile and the lining is blackout. Would it be too different to sew in a lining, or do I just put the two fabrics together and do everything as if it is one piece of fabric?
Thank you.

I believe you would work them separately so they hang properly. There is an article on lined draperies that I think will help at http://sewing.about.com/library/weekly/aa020106.htm and all of the curtain and drapery articles can be found at Sew Your Own Curtains And Window Treatments
