This interlined, shaped tieback is embellished with micro welt cord and knife pleated ruffles.
Workroom photo showing a cresent shaped leopard tieback. Heavy bump interlining, welt cord and iron-on-adhesive web are used give a soft structure. Imagine this tieback as an accent to solid khaki or black draperies.
Tiebacks can be cut with a soft curve, cresent or V-shape along the top. Shaping the tieback prevents it from binding the drapery panel at a sharp, right angle which allows the fabric to drape with a softer appearance.
