    i made a shaped roman blind once and it turned out fab. i made my shape separate with some fusible buckram padded with some interlining and incorporated it in the hem. i used an oval plate for the shape myself and met in the middle. it was lovely.

      If you want the shape to be noticeable when the blind is up, remember to make the bottom section longer than you would normally otherwise it will disappear up behind all the other folds and only be seen when it is fully down. Also these are better for blinds on the outside of the recess, otherwise the shape means that you cannot fully cover the window.
