Hi all, first time posting in this forum, hoping someone can give me a bit of advice.
I am trying to make lined drapes for a window that is 8ft high and 16ft wide. I’ve done lot’s of planning and am pretty sure I have my measurements correct and the right amount of fabric/lining for the fullness (2x) I am looking for.
Thing is I’ve come to the point of actually sewing the panels together and am breaking out in a sweat!! There is so much fabric (plus the lining is blockout – making it quite heavy) that I am having a lot of trouble working with it at my machine. I don’t want to give up but am dreading the point where I need to attach the lining to the drape fabric, then also blind hemming the hems.
So, I am wondering if any of you have hints/tips/ideas as to how I can manage this amount of fabric in the construction process.
