Layered valance in two fabrics.


Scroll down for different views and variations.

Note that the plaid pattern on the ties are slightly offset from plaid pattern on the flat sections. This was a mistake which actually makes the finished treatment more interesting.

I cut all pieces very carefully, making sure the pattern fell at the same point on each piece, measured from the bottom. Once assembled, I realized that the ties should have been cut longer at the bottom, not the top, for the pattern to remain consistent across the valance.

The same treatment, using a floral as the contrast fabric under the main stripe.

Here we employ the same design again. However, these valances are over 22 inches long. The contrast underlay is 2 inches longer than the overlay to proportionately balance the overall look.

Also, though it is not easy to see, the pattern for the ties was cut to a point following the diamond pattern woven in the fabric. It is a small detail, but one which enhances the finished product and indicates a custom finish.
