What a Great Idea! - Layered Roman Shade


Super talented fabric wiz, Liz Ware of Details Pattern Company has produced a pattern for this truly innovative layered roman shade. Each scalloped layer is pulled up behind one another as the shade is raised creating a a great stacked effect at the bottom.




Looks like you would have to be very careful with your fabric selection but otherwise it seems to be a simple design. Isn't it crazy how something can seem so obvious once someone has done the hard work to figure it out! Thanks Liz, I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot of your design in the future.



Her pattern is available now on her website Details Pattern Company





Liz is most notable for her fine detailing and tailoring as seen in these designs. I've always loved these floral tiebacks and long to make some but I haven't had the time.




Loved this tacked back scalloped facing at the leading edge of this panel. Using buttons to hold the fabric in place is a great idea.




This very subtle and tailored version of the shirred cuff heading is wonderful.

Can't wait to see what you dream up next Liz, Keep it coming....

Jackie, I may only be 25 years old, but I just moved into my first home that is not mine, but 'ours'. I hsve been looking for drapes that would match our bedding but I cannot find any green that is dark enough(I'm looking for a moderately dark olive gren color)! If you have any suggestions, I would be much obliged, I love your taste!

The green presented here is rich. It's not too dark, though, and actually looks good. Great taste.

That is a beautiful shade. It is certainly reminiscent of the Roman Senate.
