I made a pair of these inverted pleat panels for the former dining room of my sweet stepdaughter, Mrs. S.
The skirts were made with two different fabrics, tassel fringe and covered buttons.
For you astute readers, you may recognize this space as being in my master bedroom that I'm currently working on (you can see the progress here and here). I took these down quite some time ago so that I could redo my bedroom, but I still love them.
They originally were plain rod pocket draperies that I took apart and added a contrast fabric and trim to. The ball fringe trim was taken off of some other window treatments and reused here. I added goblet pleats and covered buttons.
Skirted panels can be a good way to lengthen existing drapery panels. I made these for a builders model house that Bella Designs, the designers I was working for, designed. When they were reused in a second model, they needed to be lengthened a little more. If you look closely, you can see the added length and row of matching trim at the bottom. Excuse the cord - this room was still a work in progress when I snapped this photo.
You remember these that I recently made for my master bedroom? They are just simple rod pocket panels with a skirt attached. I added a contrast band for interest.
I fabricated this same style window treatment for another model home that Bella Designs designed.
I made a pair of these skirted panels for a client who has a two story family room. Sorry about the fan - it was impossible to get a shot of the entire length of the panels without the fan being a part of it.
I also made a pair of these for my family room.
These panels that are in my living room and dining room technically have a flag pendant as opposed to being considered skirted panels, but I think they're close enough to be included in this grouping.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about one of my favorite styles of window treatment.
