  • shaped pelmet problem

    I am replacing a clients pelmets and she wants them copying. They are flat, but in the centre and either side there is a running stitch running from the hem vertically for about 5" which gathers the fabric slightly and gives it a scalloped shape. She does not want it on ply wood, but the origionals were really floppy and unstable. Is there anything I can use to make it firm, but retain the softness and still sew through it to attach the trim?

    Could you use loomstate canvas? I think Schuhby and someone else have used this, they might be able to clarify if it would work here.

      Julie,
      does she want the same finished look? If so, make them as valances.

      If you would prefer a bit more structure, how about 'legs' at each end of the valance board?
      Kind regards
