  • Double pleats with a twist

    In last months Homes and Gardens there were some super pictures of some light weight curtains with a double pleat heading. The double pleats have beed sewn at the top only and NOT at the bottom as you would expect.I think they look great and not something I have seen before.It gives a really contempary look. The pictures are on page 42 and 43. I really like the way the fabric falls away from the top of the curtain and forms an upside down V. It really is thinking outside the box.

    Penny,

    in one of my forays into the American site, there were lots of these pleats. I cannot remember what they were called, but that what was done. Triple / double pleats sewn at the top only. I am not able to ask in the forum as I do not subscribe to it so I cannot help you with the name....maybe somebody out there can. Another interesting facet on sewing.

      I think they might be called fan pleats - look anything like this? http://s7d4.scene7.com/s7ondemand/zo...Fan_Plea_Drape
