I finished these soft fold roman shades.. I wound up putting one of them on the board 4 times before every single fold matched the other one perfectly...they were going in the same window side by side they had to match perfectly...... Why did I have to put it on four times?.... Who knows ROFL... I measured and measured.. I check I double checked... I made them exactly the same.. I placed every ring exactly the same spacing... Roman Shades can be like that.. real toots when they want to be ROFL... Patience is a good character trait if you are going to make roman shades for a living :O).. Luckily I usually have plenty... I made two of these just like the one you see.. I was pleased with them.. They were pretty... These are called Soft fold roman shades or some call them Hobbled Shades.. I think the term hobbled shade is probably known to those of us that have been in this a while.. where soft fold is the newer term I think :O)
Honeyman liked these.. his first response when he saw them was...wow I like those... :O)... I don't make near as many of these as I do flat roman shades.. no doubt cost is a factor. It takes twice the fabric to make one as a flat roman shade and these are more expensive to have made. They are slower, harder, more tedious, more supplies to make them.
