  • Seaming panels?

    I've just bought the Merrick and Day Encyclopaedia and reading through it I came across the statement never have a seam in the centre of a panel. Does this mean that if I have two widths in a curtain I should cut one of them in half and put each half either side of the other width? seems a fiddly thing to have to do rather than simply sewing the two widths together.

    Hi Susan

    This would only apply to joins in flat panels such as a roman blind or upholstered pelmet, if making a roman blind that requires more than one width, you would put a full width in the middle and an equal amount either side. It doesn't apply to curtains, though your half widths will always go on the outside edge.

      Oh of course! I should have realised it meant a flat panel like a roman blind. Thank you for your reply. All my othr sewing books are currently packed away so I couldn't check it out in them.
