Time to get dressed.

I could only get decent pictures at nighttime because there was too much glare coming through the windows during the day, but everything looks so dark and you don't get a nice view of the colors. :( oh well.
2. Plan to gather your window treatment along the top of the rod. Gathering is your friend!!! It hides imperfections if your panels don't match up exactly, even though you painstakingly measured them out precisely. Ugh.
3. Use fabric glue to attach the trim. I got this tip from several sewing blogs I happened across when researching the window treatments and it worked like a charm! It holds down the wide band of trim better than a single stitch and your trim doesn't get "handled" as much, which keeps it looking prettier.

Come to think of it, you could probably achieve a similar effect using iron on fusible tape instead of sewing the seams.
Everyone should try it!! It was easy and rewarding.
