In the past I’ve used your excellent tutorials and videos to make Roman blinds and Triple-pleat curtains.
I meant to purchase the SewHelpful tutorial for lined Roman blinds again but selected the wrong one and selected Roman blinds with black out lining. Can I use the latter but make some small amendments to hems etc or will I need to purchase a new tutorial? Thank you!
Please see your email
Great video’s thank you, I would be lost without them!
Please can you kindly advise if it is possible to use bonded interlining in either direction in order to avoid joining the interlining in a larger Roman blind. If it’s not possible, where would you recommend the best place to make the join. Thanking you in advance.
Yes you can do that.
Hello. Thank you for so much for such detailed, professional tutorials. I used one of them to make a pair of triple pleat lined curtains a few years ago - they turned out very nicely! I am now planning to make a couple of Roman blinds and have a question about the kit.
My finished blind width will be 152.5 cm. I am planning to use a headrail kit from Merrick & Day, which comes in standard widths. The size nearest to my blind's width is 150 cm and the next one up is 180 cm. Can I get away with using the 150 cm wide kit or do I need to buy the 180 cm one and cut it to size? Just seems such a waste...
We would buy the 180cm and cut it down.
I like a very dark bedroom - I've looked at all your comments regarding backout interlining etc. If you hang a roman blind outside the recess (so I can put things on the window sill) would the blind then be hanging away from the wall so that you get light seepage around the edge. Would it be 'darker' to hang the blind inside the recess?
You will get more light seepage around the roman blind if you mount it
outside the recess. You will still also get some light seepage around
the blind though even if mounted inside the recess.
If you really want to black the room out you need floor length blackout curtains returned to the wall covered with a pelmet.
