  • 4.
    Measuring for Outside Mounted Roman Shade
    With outside shade mount you can allow 2” beyond the frame
    on both sides of the window casing
    The height is normally about
    4 inches above the window and
    down to the bottom window sill
  • 5.
    Estimating the Fabric
    Estimating Face Shade Fabric (front side of shade)
    • width + 3”
    • 6. length + 5” double fold hem and allowance to cover board
    • 7. Hems can be 3” to 6” depending on the shade
    Example: Shade width 40” Shade length 50”
    • Width 40” +3”= 43”
    • 8. Length 50” + 10”hem + 4” board cover = 64”
    Fabric cut size would be 43”x62”
    Lining width is cut 41” 2” less than the face fabric
    Lining length is 64”
    Interlining is cut finished shade size 40”x50”
  • 9.
    Matching Fabric When Shade is Wider Than 54”
    Split second width equally
    on both side of center fabric
    Center cut
    1 – 54” width of fabric
    When needing only a few more inches for the width
    you might need to cut the center cut a little smaller
    so you shade will look balanced
  • 10.
    Depend on the length of the shade you can change the fold length. Normal folds are 4”-8” space or 5”-10” space
  • 11.
    Making the Shade
    In the photos we are making a lined shade, without interlining.
    If you do not have a grid surface you can use a contractors square
    and tape an outline to create a true square.
    When your fabric is square your shade will hang straight
  • 12.
    Paula a student at Home Fashions U
    Is cutting her lining and face fabric
  • 13.
    Measuring a 11/2” side hem on the face fabric using a fabric folding pen
    The fabric folding pen creates a fold line in the fabric for easy folding and ironing
  • 14.
    Creating a 1” fold line on the lining fabric
  • 15.
    You can see the lining lays ½ inch in side the face fabric
    • Face Fabric has 1 ½” fold
    • 16. Lining as 1” fold
    With wrong sides of face fabric and lining together
    you can begin to fold the hem in place at the
    bottom of the shade.
  • 17.
    If making a cordless shade you would now use the
    Sealah Tape to tape the two layers together and tape.
    The hem in place, leaving a opening for the weight bar
    at the bottom of the shade. Sealah Tape
    Notice the hem is folded at an angle on the inside,
    this prevents it from showing any raw edges
  • 18.
    Using ribs inside of your shade will control the fabric when lifting.
    Rib Line
  • 19.
    After Marking the Rib Lines, turn your lining fabric over with wrong side up.
    Now you can iron on the rib tape which has iron on adhesive on the edges of the tape.
    This will allow you to slide the plastic ribs into the fabric opening
  • 20.
    Now we have the ribs inserted and with wrong sides
    Together it is time to attach the lining and face fabric
    with Sealah Tape
  • 21.
    Once again when finishing the hem fold the corners in
    and adhere in place with Sealah Tape
  • 22.
    Now sew the white rings
    On to the shade.
    Ring spacing 8-12” apart
    Use Brass Rings on the bottom
  • 23.
    Cover the mounting board with face fabric for outside mounts,
    you can use lining for inside mounts.
    Staple or Velcro the shade to the mounting board and add
    the cords locks and cords or use a Safe T Shade Lift System
