This book has very complete instructions for many types of window teatments. It is clear and well illustrated with photos. I used it to make inverted-pleat drapes for my guest room, and they turned out great! I was taking a home dec sewing class at the time, and I liked this book better than my required text book.

The photos are great. This book gave several great ideas. However, the book is weak on details. It's not really a how-to book.

If you can sew, you can make some beautiful drapes using this book aqnd save yourself thousands of dollars. Great book

Very detailed & easy to understand, many different types of curtains/drapes & easy to make variations. Enjoyed very much.

The basics are given to make drapes. It is quite concise, so read a number of times before cutting fabric. I ventured away from their instructions with what I thought was an improvement. They turned out fine. The pictures were helpful.

I got this book because I was planning to make some drapes for our windows throughout the house. But I never actually got around to making the drapes, but when i do I will read this book again and use these techniques. Well written and informative with very cool pictures.

Great read and instructional information for making all types of window treatments! Easy to understand and very functional! Helps to keep abreast of new styles as well as old standards!

Informative with good detailed instructions. Especially good for beginners. The pictures are very well done for interesting new ideas for window treatments.
