Although I'd planned to hang sheer white drapes in my giant hallway window, I came across some lovely ivory taffetta that was as cheap as chips. As I needed 7 metres of the stuff I was sold!
Plus the ribbon I used to trim the edges was not cheap. I'm happy with the outcome, especially the two differnt lengths.
And the taffeta is nice and crinkly, plus it makes a lovely swooshy sound as the wind blows through the windows. I've trimmed both edges of the curtains with ribbon now.
