I'm thinking I'd like theses in some of my rooms, but wondering if they are difficult to sew. I've made lined drapery, valances, etc., but for some reason have been intimidated by roman shades.
I don't think they would be too difficult as long as the rings line up horizontally.
There used to be a man on this forum (think he lived in Bakersfield Ca) and he did very good sewing and was a good decorator. Maybe others will remember him too. Seems to me he left instructions of how to sew Roman shades.
If you mean for your bedroom, they would be great!
Joy Luck has lists of different categories of things on members. Maybe those instructions are included on that listing?????
Would you make them with inserts where the pleats are or just have them "soft"?
They aren't difficult. If you Google "How to make ..." you'll probably find tons of simple instructions.
It was Miles, LOS. He could be a stinker, but I really liked him a lot and he was wonderful with some of his projects! He's one of the people I miss. Loved his bed project!
You can do it, Christy!
Not difficult at all. Straight lines and straight seams. I would be sure use one of the cutting grids like the quilters use and a rotary cutter. They make it much easier to keep everything straight. Be sure to consider your fabric repeat especially where you will make the folds.
Here are some pattern links. I have purchase from this company and very happy with their customer service.

That is right and he could be vicious. I have wondered (since he had hinted at self destructive tendencies . . . if he is o.k.)
I remember the headboard made up of blocks of wood and covered with fabric. Great idea and execution.
