Dorothy held the fabric down so I could cut it ... actually she was wild-eyed and spunky and was wadding it into bunches as she scampered back and forth.
Alice settled comfortably as I was ironing.
Ruby wasn't about to be left out. She came in to hold the layers together while I pinned the lining.
I have two panels finished, and a lot of photos taken for the tutorial I promised. All I have left to do is to install the hardware on the walls to hang the drapes and get those dramatic 'after' photos ... and sew six more panels, of course ... but these don't affect the tutorial.
(Just to let you know ... these drapes are SO easy!! Anyone who can sew a relatively straight line, and operate an iron, can ABSOLUTELY do this! I can't wait to show you how it's done.)
