|Rouched Drapery Heading|
It can be as simple as a beautiful drapery tieback, or as elaborate as layers of handsewn
trims. My personal favorites are knife pleating, rouching, and contrast microcording.
Silk is always a wonderful fabric to use for special touches and flatters just about any
decorating fabric. I also like to make my own braided cord by using a small woven check
and cutting it on the bias for the piping. It is so much easier to work with than purchased braid
and looks much nicer.
