Ready to cry--made London shade
I am sooo frustrated!! I've tried making 3 of these london shades and I'm ready to throw in the towel. This last time I bought a Vogue pattern and it still did not turn out. When I draw up the sides the fabric pulls awkwardly towards the middle of the window, instead of stacking nicely "straight up". I put a pleat in the top center as well to allow for more "give."
I used a heavy cotton and lined it with the black-out lining. It's heavy---but I don't know that this is my problem? The other ones I've tried making were with unlined silk and I had a similar issue with pulling.
Has anyone had any success making these?
