      I adore the third one down! I like the gothic feel of number 2 and think number 4 is really intricate, but I can't get my head round number 1. Where would you put that?

          Is the middle bit on the first one inside out? I know castles where it'd go over the door.

            Hi Nic,

            I think the answer to your question is it's a pleat, and it can be tucked in or pulled out.

              That's what I meant, sorry.It shows you both ways of dressing the style in one photo. Should think before I type. I'd love to make things like these.

                  These kind of elaborate window dressings are very American. M'Fay are I believe US. The work that they put into dressing their windows over there is amazing.

                  Do you think this is heading our way? I know homes tend on average to be a bit smaller than theirs and these window treatments can dominate a room. I like the idea that you use a pattern. The English way is to work it out for yourself which makes us more creative I think but makes for a lot of work and worry.

                  Philip do you have any plans to use one or other of these soon? If so where?

                      Hi Philip

                      I do hope you put a picture up when you have done your bedroom curtains.

                        Hi Philip

                        I was browsing the gallery and came across the M'Fay patterns you bought, I have seen them on the american sites, is that were you bought yours or can you get them over here. There is a few that i like but dont want to buy them all at once and it makes it pricey if you only send for one or two at a time.

                        Regards

                        Irene

                          Hello Irene

                          I bought one last week and was charged $27 for postage - The last time Bev and I bought 4 between us and had then send the postage was $30 but we had a large customs bill of about $30 / $40 on top! This was charge on delivery by Royal Mail. They are purchased from M'fay in the USA.

                            Wow. These are so amazingly elaborate, but I bet the construction is clever. These styles might be coming back in. I'm beginning to have clients talking about swags and tails again, so perhaps a more ornate future is in store for us. I know that quite a lot of people want trimmings at the moment, particularly on the bottom edge of romans. It all depends on the style of the home I guess.

                              Hi Philip, love the curtains, sort of work i would like to aspire to! Do you find the patterns easy to follow and are they exspensive to purchase?
