A Workroom View

The task at hand: Creating a teardrop swag treatment for a cathedral window gallery. Working with angles is both exciting and challenging. I first spent some time taking measures and analyzing how I would install the treatment. Back in the workroom, the homosote wall is draped with accurate lines and weight chains to simulate treatment lines. From these measures comes the custom pattern drafting. The pattern is then checked for any necessary alterations before we get to the fabricating stage. Even the pleated underpanels have to incorporate a precisely angled heading. Finally, I am satisfied with the results. More importantly, so is the client!
