    Hi Alison,
    I dont remember the picture, but when you pulled your London blind up, did you dress it? They look dreadful if just pulled up.
    Kind regards

        Do you mean these? These blinds are made as you would a normal roman blind with excess fabric at the bottom creating a swag - The swag is fixed.

        These are the largest pictures I have..

              Aren't London Blinds those with an inverted pleat where the blind is pulled up? I have made several of these in the past and they do need dressing as the fullness needs to be folded neatly into swags. I usually stitch rings up the back about 10cm apart. Could it be something as simple as the rings not quite close enough together. I wouldn't want to re-make something if it just needs a bit of tweaking.

              Poor you. We all seem to be having last minute problems. Hope they work out OK for you.

                Hi Philip,

                I was about to make a cascade blind, but when I saw these I changed my mind. Where do I place the weight bar and how.

                  I didn't see those first time around - what a nice idea! Not one for fuss, but do like the little tassels!

                    I am about to do the calculations for a swagged roman just like the pics. of the one Philip shows here.
                    Should I be making the roman as normal and then hand sew on the lower swag section...... or....... should I include the allowance for the swag onto the bottom half fold.??
                    If it's the second option, where and how do you insert the bottom bar.?
                    Kind regards

                      Hi Cat

                      I would suggest you include the extra fabric required for the swag and put a pocket above the swag for the weight bar, just so it sits behind the bottom fold out of view.

                        Thanks Philip, I see what you mean. I think that should work for me.
