The Shade Book: Roman, Cloud, Balloon, Roller Shades, Shade Toppers, and More Reviews
Bought this thirty years ago and have made more Roman Shades than I can count. The instructions are clear for every type of shade and when I saw this on Amazon I bought one to replace my shredded original.
I've made a lot of drapery treatments for my home, but I've always had to go to a fabric store and wade through tons of pattern books to find what I was looking for. This book has great ideas plus detailed instructions and methods. It also ends up saving you money as you get so many different pattern guides for the price. I highly recommend this book for making your own shades.
Great instructions, I think even I... the opposite of a domestic goddess... can make shades. I think my first project will be for the bedroom, practice. ;)
Clearly written which I appreciate.
This has very good instructions and pictures of how to make roman shades. A definite good tool to help people make their own shades
Found this book at the library while researching roman shades. It has EVERYTHING I needed to know about
Great book for seamstresses. Not as good for sewing-challenged consumers. I would have preferred less technical info and more illustrations -- especially color photos of the different shades in finished rooms.
Great, informative book.
