Hello fellow members! I am rather new to the board and this is my first 'new topic' I've started so bear with me please.
This is not exactly about quilting but I know some of you are experienced in garment making, crafts, etc. I am making my DGD curtains, bedskirt and decorative pillows to match a quilt and pillow sham my DD bought at Target. She is getting a "big girl's room for her 3rd BD.
My DD has her heart set on the same pattern for the curtains that Target has to match the set (even thought I tried to talk her out of all these ruffles). Of course I have made curtains and ruffles before but never these long ruffles that will go down the length of the curtain, have a shirt-tail hem on both sides and be gathered and sewn down the middle of the ruffle.
I researched on line and found that 'regular ruffles' (that are gathered at the top end should be cut crosswise or on the bias, but because these will run the length of the curtain and be sewn down the middle, I can't help but think they should be cut lengthwise. That is where I need your expert opinion on this matter.
I hope this link works so you can see what I have tried to explain. I know I am a visual person and suspect my explanation has most of you very confused.
Thank you so much for your time!
