    Re: sheers

    A tuck is simply a fold in the fabric sewn with a straight line of stitching close to the fold. In the M&D book they are suggesting you embellish the bottom edge of a sheer curtain with several parallel tucks. It is important they are folded and stitched accurately to look attractive.

      Thanks Louise. I had no idea either. Sounds like hard work to make a good job unless it's something you've practised. I think I'll stick to simple hems.

        I wouldn't even consider making sheers myself, not a chance! I send them out to Krams Ugo Ltd Very reasonable and very professional...

          I'm with phillip on this one, sheers unless railroaded and weighted like some supplied in the reflections range from villa nova which only need the sides turning in, I would leave it to Krams Ugo too. They are exceptional at what they do!
          Sheers fill me with dread
