  • The Arched Window..... gentle arch thankfully!

    It 'WILL' pull up better, once the cleat is on the wall and the strings are not wrapped up around the window fasten, promise!

      Thank you so much Ursula - the fabric was the princely sum of £3.50 / m for upholstery fabric and, once interlined, was flippin' heavy. I ended up hanging it upside down from the weight bar pocket in order to stab stitch as I don't have a facility to hang arched blinds.....

        £3.50/m......so you can make a silk purse from a sow's ear! It looks absolutely brilliant Jules. I shall be bookmarking those photos incase I ever get a similar request

          Thank you Jane, I'm thrilled to be bookmarked! Does that mean I'm in (e)print?

          The headrail was a little bit of a challenge. . . . in the end we used two lengths of 1/2" ply, sandwiched with glue and top fixed. It was great to bend to the arched shape, easy to staple my velcro to and (apart from jiggering up my shoulder/neck), excellent to screw my 9 screw eyes into.

            I'll have to get my act together and learn how to make romans without stitching on roman blind tape and seeing the stiches on the front. All of you girls and Philip of course show the most amazing blinds. Just wish I was near to ye so I could book a weeks lessons.

              Well done Jules. Beautifully made and what a perfect fit. Did you make a template of the curve?

                  Excellently executed Jules!
                  Not and easy job to do especially with the problem of the fitting to the curve.

                  Well done.
                  Kindest Regards

                      That's fabulous well done, I've never done an arched window, so will know who to call on if I get asked. |How did you do the template?

                        Hi
                        Lovely blind did you attach the the ply wood to the top of the recess or the pvc window if so how did you do it?
                        Always very nervous about drilling into pvc. Thanks

                          Hi Natasha,

                          Thank you! The arch of the window is brick so it was easy to get a good fix into it. I haven't yet tackled screwing into pvc though I know it is possible. Perhaps someone on here knows about the do's and don't's of fixing into pvc.....?

                              Thank you Marela, you're really kind. I do love making romans.

                              I'm about to have a go at making romans with Venus dimout. I'll be on the email to Tam hourly for advice no doubt. . . . .
