I was very disappointed in the content of the book. Not only were the styles out of date but the construction of the curtains was anything but professional. I am the owner of an upscale drapery workroom and I am always looking for books with great ideas, there were none in this book and frankly if I constructed any of my curtains in the manner in which she describes they would be returned by the designer and the client because of the poor quality.
"Carolyn Wrey's Complete Curtain Making Course" covers all of the basics and many of the extras of curtain making. The photographs are excellent and the text is extremely easy to follow and understand. This book is a must for anyone who is decorating a home, whether they are a homeowner or a professional decorator.
I was looking for help in how to cut and manage drapery fabric when making curtains. This book has a couple of helpful ideas on the subject. I also wanted detailed instructions on how to make lined draperies. There are detailed instructions but not enough for me. I am a beginner sew'er (not even a seamstress!). The how to pictures weren't big enough to show alot of detail and I am left with a bunch of questions. I am keeping the book though because it does have some neat ideas on drapery styles (i.e., Italian stringing) and very good instructions on how to make pinch pleat drapes if ever I try to!
A great disappointment. The relatively fashionable cover doesn't reflect the inside of the book. The window treatments shown in this book resemble one another and are old-fashioned and plain. An "Absolute-Beginners" type of book,but even so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone I know.
