Pretty Smocked Heading

This drapery panel was made using the Diamond Smocking tape  and lined with R-Tex Medium Weight Bump and Hanes Classic Sateen.  The fabrication is simple and stylish and installation is a breeze because the loop tape is incorporated into the smocking and is ready to install to our Right Angle Hook Strip or to a cornice, frame, pole rod or dust board.

To give the heading more definition the diamond pattern was hand tacked using a matching thread and a long, John James needle.

Silk was used at the top portion with a micro welt cord in stripe separating the solid and print fabrics.  A fringe could also be added to this seam.

For a tall window or for more drama use two layers of Smocking Tape creating a deeper heading.
