Curtain Stats

Looking back, I didn't do a very good job of organizing information in my last entry. In preparation for Mom's big sewing visit next weekend, I'm going to tidy up all the curtain info in this entry.

Embroidered blue pseudo-silk ("Belvedere Federal Blue") - 26' 10" long, 59" wide - very little gathering/bunching
brown gauze - 5' 9" long, 59" wide
brown chenille/ultrasuede/velvet/what-have-you - ? - 10" panels on either side of the blue on the east/8" on the south, to bunched/gathered 2.5 x the width
curtain backing for blue panels - 26' 10" long
curtain backing for brown panels - ?

Belvedere Federal Blue fabric sample

Velvet/velvetine/velour/chenille brown panels on the sides, the same material as rod pockets, and central panels made of opaque blue embroidered "silk" on the bottom and super-sheer brown gauze at the top.

Closeup of rod we'll be using--obviously in need of improved finial. Note that curtains--unlike old sheets--will hang via pockets, not clamps.
