This simple, elegant valance has a scant amount of fullness in the swag areas. You can plan how wide you want the swag areas. The valance "kicks out" where it attaches to the medallion, forming a "horn" effect. The tail is cut on a curve and hangs very full. The width of the swag areas can be most anything you want. Add as few or as many as you want. The valance finishes about 16" deep. The valance tail will finish about 28" deep. Alteration instructions are included for the valance depth. Fabric Suggestions: Soft fabrics with body should be used. Heavy upholstery fabrics can be used, as bulk is not a problem. Stripes and plaids will hang at a variety of angles on the tails. This may (or may not) be desirable to you. The lining will show in the folds of the tails. It is suggested you use a self or contrast lining for the tails. Regular drapery lining can be used for the valance.
