This simple valance is easy to make, although it has a lot of seams. The pleats are tapered to be wide at the bottom and narrow at the top. The valance is cut in 7 pieces which are sewn together to finish as one piece (including the jabots). This will create a center section with a side section, horn, and jabot on each side (or an alternative simple return). The finished valance is attached to 5 decorative holdbacks.
