New Summer Curtains & Bye-Bye Roller Shades

Summer is here and we needed a new window treatment right quick. While I love the vintage cotton drapes we had up, they're a bit too wintry and heavy and the cheap-o roller shades were really getting me down.

I designed new curtains made out of cotton muslin with a hook & eye system to raise and lower them to different levels. The machine sewing was simple - just hemming and 3 folded bands width wise. I hand sewed the hooks & eyes and hung them with Spring Sash Rods for a simple, almost hidden hardware look. The math was the hardest part. I'll post my measurement doodles soon.

So fresh and white!
