Adding a Border to Sheer Curtain Panels
I have fallen in love with a sheer silk remnant. The pattern is a check / plaid in greens, yellows, and soft reds. I think the fabric would look great as curtain panels in my family room, as a change from my heavier lined panels, for spring & summer.
Of course, there isn't enough fabric to make full length panels. Do you think it would look odd to add a 12" border at the bottom in a solid yellow silk? The 12" border would line up with the windowsill. Plus, the border may help add weight to the sheers and keep them from blowing around as much.
I have seen sheers with borders on houzz, but the ones that I have seen there are solid sheers with the same color border (i.e. ivory sheer with an ivory linen border at the bottom) I'm just not sure about the patterned sheer with a solid bottom. I tried to lay it out in the store, and I think it looked fine, but I'm afraid to trust my judgement after my recent front door snafu :)
Thank you in advance for your opinions!
