Everybody who knows me knows that I am a fabric addict. I love many different kinds of fabrics; cotton prints, linens, silks. I love them all. In fact one of my famous lines is "So many fabrics, So little time"!
Sometimes when I receive the notice that a fabric I have in my line will be discontinued and I haven't had a chance to design something with it, I will buy some yardage and hold it until the right room or project comes along.
This was the case recently when I had on hand a gorgeous silk damask that I had admired and bought after being discontinued. I wanted a change from the green striped silk that had hung there for several years, so I finally sketched up a design. I wanted a dressy look since this window is on the front of the house and is in my office. I added a ruched-cuff heading and lots of fullness in width. I also splurged on heavy English bump interlining which gives body and richness to silk like no other interlining.

The finished product!
I think they will be a nice dressy look for the holidays. Thanks for looking!
(P.S. the wall color is not quite as orange as it looks in this photo!)
