Top Treatments E-book

Learn how to make these rolling swagsPelmets are used where a tailored top treatment is required and can be a simple way of covering a curtain track or made as a dramatic addition to a window. They are suitable for all shapes of window but must be in proportion to the other treatments, 1/6th of the curtain length is usual but the sides can be much longer as with lambrequins.

Swags are an elaborate form of window top treatment which drape across in deep folds. You can have one swag draped across the whole width of the window or a number of smaller swags butted together or overlapped. They are usually teamed up with decorative tails which cover the returns of the pelmet board.

Valances are in essence a mini curtain that covers the top and sides of the window frame or curtain track. They need at least the same fullness as the curtains and can therefore utilize any of the curtain heading styles. Valances can be teamed up with blinds or curtains to give the window a softer look.

Ornamental trimmings can be added to most soft furnishings to enhance the look and add a personal touch. Bows, rosettes and decorative tails can liven up plain pelmets, valances, bed drapes and swags and tails. Smaller versions can be stitched onto tie backs to coordinate the effect.


The step by step soft furnishing instructions are easy to follow and are accompanied by colour diagrams. They have even been tested on people with very limited sewing experinece.
All the sewing instructions are interactively linked to the included sewing guide, so no searching for "How To's".
