How To Sew Expensive Looking Professional Lined Drapes In A Day

I was sick of my plain windows. I had all the right furniture in the room, but nothing on my windows. Here's the dilemma. I am moving to Texas in a few months... so whatever I decided to make had to be versatile enough to use on the windows in the house in Texas. So, I didn't want to make something so tailored that I couldn't reuse the fabric.

I also didn't want to spend too much time on this project. After all, I'm only going to be in the house for a couple more months.

What I came up with was simple, but beautiful drapes that were super easy to make. And I'm going to show you how!

I made a total of 8 panels... 2 per window. I averaged 2 Panels a night. So, you could easily dress up a window in a day.

The rods cost me $25 each... totaling $100. The fabric on sale cost me about $300.

I was able to give my room softness, drama, color and a designers touch for less than $500. These would have cost close to $4000 if I had a professional design and make these for me.
