    Hi,
    I have made Romans with borders top, bottom and sides. You must be really accurate with the centre piece of fabric, so that the borders end up the same size top and bottom. Quite a bit of planning and no room for error. Avoid the top one if you can!

        HI LSS,

        I think you are right in putting border just along bottom especially if its a check because theres a lot going on anyway. Can you not get some long cord and wrap it around the pole draping it how you would your fabric then measure when you take it off ? Think that should work.

          I have some really cheap polycotton lining that I keep for the purpose of making pole wrapping templates or scarf swags. I just keep reusing it, and use it for wrapping curtains for delivery or using for bandaging after hanging. It keeps getting smaller each time but it is comforting to know you have done a proper toile to the right size. I usually find a full width folded lengthwise is sufficient depth etc. for a casual wrapped pole type thingy.
