bespoke drapes: hemming

drapery hemThis is all I’ve done today, what with summer activities and the time involved for this project. I’m using a catch stitch – or, in drapery language, a herringbone stitch – for the hems. And I’m very thankful for my leather thimble, without which my finger would be shredded.

  1. Very nice. You are motivating me into turning the huge rolls of fabric, interlining, and lining that lay in wait, into bedroom drapes. Soon!
