What materials did you use? I used a graphic lattice print fabric. The toughest part was cutting it out! I will only mark this as advanced because of the cutting issues - the print had to repeat perfectly across the valance. Otherwise, stitching it up was a breeze.

What are you most proud of? I was so happy that my client loved it! I stayed up late one night planning the cutting - it took awhile but I knew that it had to be perfect.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would advise you to take the extra time to plan this properly AND purchase an extra yard of fabric when working with prints. This way if you cut a piece improperly, you have extra fabric!

Very impressive, the design is very current. I can see that planning and precision is everything.

What was in the difficulty of cutting?

I had to match the lattice print at all the folded pleat sections to form a continuous look across the valance. If I hadn't done this, the graphic print would have looked terrible if it didn't flow uniformly across the front sections.
